On the importance of granola bars

Or any other food that travels well.  You see, sometimes you have to go places where you don’t if you’ll be able to eat what they have.  As my mother always says, “If you’re going to someone’s house, eat at home first.”  Frankly, you never know.  Sure, your close friends probably know not to serve you deep fried Twinkies, but your spouse’s coworker’s family that kindly invited you to their summer BBQ probably does not. Moreover, it’s very rude to show up to someone’s party, exclaim you can’t possibly eat anything, and sit in a corner fuming that everyone else gets to chow down.

So, bring a granola bar. Or eat at home. That way, if you go to someone’s house, you’re not so hungry that you eat everything in sight and then have a stomachache, but you can almost always find a little something to eat to be polite, even if it’s just grazing on salad (before it’s smothered in Ranch dressing).

    You have much better manners than my father, who spends every Christmas at our Spanish friend’s house, exclaiming that he’s kosher and is tired of seeing ham in every dish.

      He went to a Spanish person’s house. Of course there’s ham in everything. They put ham in Chinese fried rice, ffs.
