Conversation At Snack Time

Me: Laura, stop eating the salt off those pretzels and then putting them back in the bowl.

Laure: But Mommy, the salt is so tasty. I want to eat them this way. First I eat the salt, then I eat the rest of the pretzel.

Me: But if you just ate it all at once, you'd have the salt ON the pretzel and it would taste fine. When you eat the salt first, you're left with a bland pretzel that doesn't taste very good.

Laura: But I don't want to eat it that way. The salt is yummy.

Me: But that doesn't make any sense.

Laura: Mommy, I don't know how I got this way. It just happened.

If she only likes eating the salt and not the pretzel, you might as well just give her a little cup of rock salt. But I can't imagine that being tasty or healthy. Maybe she just likes the process of picking off the salt.

I have a confession...I eat pretzels just like Laura! lol!

I have to say that her #4 and #5 uncles went through a salt phase. Josh salts his salted popcorn still. When I was little I would salt ham, and would have salted bacon if I could, so I guess that is where they get it. I have to agree with her that the salt is the best part of the pretzel!
