Corn Syrup is Something Sweet

During my wolf down your food in 5 minutes or less lunch break at work yesterday, I called Chris to ask if I’d left my blackberry at home. Turns out that I did, but then we had the following conversation…

Chris – “I left something sweet in your car.”
Me – “You put something in my car? At work?”
Chris – “Yep.”
Me – “That’s so sweet! What is it?”
Chris – “Corn syrup.”
Me – “…”
Chris – “You there?”
Me – “Um, yes, I’m still here. Did you just say you put corn syrup in my car?”
Chris – “Yeah!”
Me – “Really? Why?”
Chris – “Well, you said yesterday that you were going to make me Derby pie, but that you didn’t have any corn syrup, so I bought some and left it in your car so that you could make the pie tonight before I got home.”
Me – “Okay then!” (laughter) “Thanks, I guess!”
Chris – “You’re welcome!”
And that, dear readers, is how my husband’s mind works!
