Because we're ridiculous, this is an actual argument that took place in our house the other day.
I was going to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and Matt said he wanted to make one too, so I said that was fine, we could share the knife and cut down on dishes. He put peanut butter on his piece of bread, and I did the same.
And then he took a spoon out of the drawer.
Me: "Why do you need a spoon for peanut butter and jelly?"
Matt: "To get the jelly out of the jar."
Me: "No, you use the knife to get the jelly out of the jar."
Matt: "But then you get peanut butter in the jelly jar!"
Me: "No, you wipe the knife on the clean piece of bread, so there's not peanut butter all over it, then it's good for the jelly jar. Using a spoon only dirties more dishes!"
(I try not to dirty up more dishes than necessary, because Matt's in charge of dishes, and I am a nice wife.)
(But then I jammed the wiped knife into the jelly jar so he couldn't argue no mo'.)
So I'm curious: do you use a clean spoon to get jelly? Or do you use the same knife as you did on the peanut butter? What's your favorite type of jelly? Do you and your partner have different ways of doing the simplest tasks?
(Normally we buy squeezy jelly so this isn't a problem. But my $50 grocery budget wasn't stretching enough for squeezy jelly this week. I won't make this mistake again.)
