I love a good challenge, and when I imposed one on myself the other day, I took myself very seriously.
Allow me to explain.
My homeschooling group has a club for double digits kids (10-16), and they get together once a month or so to hang out and do fun stuff. (they have to get their socialization from somewhere, don'tchaknow)
So this month they are having a bon-fire thing-y and we all sign up to bring some kind of snack. My dear sister emails the group to ask if Rotel would be appropriate.
For those of you who don't live in the south, that would be melted Velveeta and canned diced tomatoes and chiles. This recipe is somewhat varied and is generally prepared and taken (or carried, or toted) to any number of functions such as bon-fires, church socials, picnics, weddings, baby showers, and the occasional funeral. It is served with tortilla chips.
Of course everyone replied with the expected answers that it would be great if she brought Rotel, and our darling friend Jenny smarted back that she couldn't think of many occasions in which Rotel would not be appropriate.
I thought that sounded like a challenge.
I hopped right on it.
So after a few days to consider, I came up with a few situations where Rotel and chips would NOT be appropriate.
It would not be appropriate for a guy to hide an engagement ring in the melted cheese and wait for his girl to eat enough to find it.
It would not be appropriate to be crunching away on some tortilla chips and Rotel during a symphony, and especially if you were playing in one.
I don't think one should partake of this particular fare while sitting in the court room serving on the jury.
It would not be appropriate to eat Rotel while doing any of the following activities:
Giving or receiving a massage
Giving or receiving a manicure
Brushing your teeth
Giving birth to a baby
Delivering someone else's baby
Performing a wedding
Singing an opera
Reciting a poem
Jumping on a trampoline
Getting a haircut
Having a root canal or
Can you think of any more situations in which Rotel would not be appropriate?
