VeganMoFo Day4: My Soda-Drinking Affliction

Today's MoFo Prompt: "Tell us about a weird food combo that you love"


You know, I tried and tried to think of a weird food combo that I love, and I just came up completely blank. When I was little my dad used to eat each bite of his banana with a dab of peanut butter AND a dab of mayonaisse. FOR REALZ. So, I guess, maybe my dad set the "weird food combo" so darn high with that one that he's just got me beat.

There is one thing though, that Mr Vegan Eats & Treats frequently ridicules me for - the weird way I drink a soda from a can out of the side of my mouth, instead of straight in front of me like normal people. He says this counts as a "weird food combo" "because it combines a food and a weirdo." Ha ha. 


daddy on the cornetto            ~              me with the soda pop

My whole life, at least as long as I can remember, my father has played a somewhat obscure Baroque musical instrument called the cornetto, and it is played laterally off to the side... I sometimes wonder if that has something to do with why I drink my sodas out of the side of my mouth. 

Today, we made videos, so you can see the truth of the situation for yourself: 


Here is a video of Mr VE&T "lovingly" imitating the way I drink soda from a can.


Here is my rebuttal!

  1. Hahaha... in Mr VE&T's defense, you do make it look easy ;)
    I've heard of these mayo/peanut/banana eaters -in my books, totally weird! I also still think potato chips in sandwiches is weird too.

  2. Ha, ha!! You are so funny! I love the video feature, and you do make a good point about one's nose getting in the way. Perhaps you're the one who has been drinking it correctly all along. :)

  7. This is great; the videos totally make me laugh! I think it's so funny when my hubby or my brother imitate one of my habits to mock it.

    Seriously though, I think you definitely have something there with your soda-drinking technique. Who knows, maybe it will catch on...and the people who drink soda the conventional way will be mocked. :P

  17. Ha! Love this! On a side note, my boyfriend's mum used to dip bananas in sugar for he and his siblings. Perhaps kind of defeating the purpose of eating fruit...

  18. I love your inspiration of weird food combo! you're so cute. I have not drunk anything in a can for such a long time that I don't even remember how to drink from it. I always thought the whole process of drinking from a can was weird, no matter how.
