Need some help from all of you out there regarding an ongoing debate I have with Chuck. Many moons ago (I don't know how many), Chuck was eating a lot of carrots and complained about it. I suggested that he dip his carrots in peanut butter to give himself some variety. Chuck's face contorted into a look of horror and disgust as he asked, "Peanut butter?! That's disgusting!" I looked bewildered. Me, "No it's not. Kids eat it all the time." Chuck, "In what horribly deranged world do kids eat peanut butter and carrots?" I was still baffled, "Um, this world. Haven't you ever heard of kids eating carrots and peanut butter? Sometimes they put raisins along the top and call it ants on a log." I paused as my mind began to think, and then I continued, "Well, I know that they do that with celery and call it ants on a log. I'm not sure about carrots. But I'm sure that people eat carrots and peanut butter." Chuck continued to give me a look of dismay and disgust. I continued, "They serve ants on a log at pre-schools across the country. How could you have not heard of this?"
Chuck and I continue to debate this topic because he can't imagine the combination of carrots and peanut butter, and then just the other day, he renounced any concept of ants on a log (carrot or celery varieties alike).
So, all of you out there, please register your vote as to whether you've ever eaten or heard of carrots and peanut butter or the delightful childhood snack called ants on a log.
