Warden Subway Station - on the way to my Aunt's place
Sunday. Easter. A day of seeing the family and eating food. A lot of food. Why is there always food associated with seeing family?
Here are some possible answers...
- people like to eat and people have to eat.
- allows relatives who don't speak to each other to be in the same room and have something in common.
- Good way to feed the part of the family that's not doing as well financially without making it obvious. (ie. dinner then a care package to take home)
- allows the family that can cook to be showoffs while still pleasing the rest of the family.
- allows the family that can't cook to use remarks like "Well she's as dumb as a doorknob but she makes a great pumpkin pie!"
- allows relatives to say "I remember you when you were that small." or "My, how you've grown" or "Wow! You're fat!"
- a way to pawn off food that's been sitting in your fridge or cupboard nearing or past the expiry date.
- a way to pass off food that you received but don't want to eat (ie. Christmas cake).
