    This is a true story. If you have children you will probably relate to this father).




    I Love Mustard


    As ham sandwiches go, it was perfection: a thick slab of ham on a fresh bun with crisp lettuce and plenty of expensive, light brown, Gourmet Mustard.

    The corners of my jaw aching in anticipation, I carried it to the table in our backyard, picked it up with both hands, but was stopped by my wife suddenly at my side..

    Here, hold Johnny (our six-week-old son) while I get my sandwich,' she said.

    I had him balanced between my left elbow and shoulder and was reaching again for the ham sandwich when I noticed a streak of mustard on my fingers.

    I love mustard.

    I had no napkin.

    I licked it off.

    It was not mustard.

    No man ever put a baby down faster.

    It was the first and only time I have sprinted with my
    tongue protruding out.

    With a washcloth in each hand, I did the sort of routine
    shoeshine boys do, only I did it on my tongue.

    Later, after she stopped crying from laughing so hard, my
    wife Said, 'Now you know why they call that fancy mustard
    Poupon.''
