I May Be Canadian, But He's Not

The other day my sweetie and I were discussing foods we like and dislike. In recalling that conversation today with a coworker, all I could really remember was that he doesn't eat mayonnaise. (I mentioned this as I bit into a roast beef sandwich...on whole wheat just slathered with mayo.) I took a mini-poll around my workplace. You know, because I don't have piles of other work to do. As it turns out, there are a helluvalot o' people who don't eat it. For a wide variety of reasons:

"I'm allergic to eggs."

"I'm a vegan."

"Mayonnaise does weird things in the summer. Like on a hot day when it's been sitting on a picnic table for two hours in the blazing heat. It kinda gets a little...um...icky."

"It reminds me of that time my husband and I had to go see the fertility specialist."

"Do you know what that stuff is?!? Like, eggs and vinegar, dude! Gross!"

Then someone asked me why I eat it and my response was this:

"It's a lubricant."

I am right, people. Just admit it.
