Dinner with the Cat

For a while I lived with my step-dad. We were both single, and he did the cooking.

One day when he was away I had to fix my own dinner. I looked in the cupboard to see what was available. I found a bright red can of Jack Mackerel and I opened that. I had mackerel and crackers.

When step-dad returned he asked, “What did you have for dinner?”

“I had some mackerel from the cupboard.”

“What? I keep that to feed the cat.”

“Tasted pretty good,” I said.

After that he would frequently ask, “Shall I fix us some dinner, or did you have dinner with Missy?”

This is so funny Chuck. I like salmon but never cared for the mackerel. Salmon patties of course. Helen

More power to you -- I've never been able to stomach canned mackerel. I'll tolerate canned salmon and tuna, but I prefer all three fresh.

Given all the brouhaha over pet foods lately, sounds like step-dad was on the right track.
