W and I have been fighting. Over condiments.
I spell the red stuff you dip your fries into this way:
and write it like that on the grocery list posted on the fridge.
“Who spells catsup that way?” W asks.
She says it with distaste. Like she has swallowed a pint of sour milk.
“What do you know?” I reply. ” You don’t even like catsup.”
“It’s just weird,” she says.
“I’ll tell you what’s weird,” I say. “Someone who dips their fries in mayo. You can’t trust someone who doesn’t believe in fries and catsup.”
“I think you can’t trust someone who spells ketchup c-at-s-u-p,” she says.

So, what is it folks? Catsup or ketchup? What do you dip your french fried potatoes in?
