It goes like this:
I am a New England native. It so happens, that because I am a New England native, and my parents before me were New England natives…I’ve been exposed to the native foods pretty much from birth (which is to be expected). Well, one of those foods that I’ve been exposed to, and actually like, are cranberries.
Cranberry juice, cranberry sauce, cranberry muffins..I love them. Well..a few years ago, the kind folks at Ocean Spray introduced Craisins–dried cranberries that you can eat like raisins. I am a fan.
It so happens that, recently, I decided to break Lou of his ‘goodies every morning habit’, because Lou is starting to gain weight and get pudgy. Lou is already 16 lbs and does not need to get any bigger.
What I forgot, in my grand plan, is that the Craisin bag, sounds an awful lot like the treat bags.
You should see the looks and hear the squeaks of protest I get in the morning these days when I open up the bag of Craisins and eat some..while Lou gets bupkus.
Perhaps I should get Lou some diet cat treats, instead…
