Saving the Soup

This is totally a metaphor.

You know how sometimes, at the grocery store, when they don’t have your normal soup, you’ll see a different soup, and think, hey, maybe I should try that soup!

Your excitement mounts, you see this soup being every soup you dreamed of and more.  This could be my new favourite soup!  You get it home, you can’t wait to try it…

and it’s AWFUL.

But you, o intrepid one, o dreamer, o romantic, are not ready to give up on this soup.  Not when you had such high hopes and dreams for it!  A dash of salt, a grind of pepper, a quizzical sprinkle of cumin?  Maybe a few more minutes in the microwave and…it’s still awful.  What do you do now?  Do you eat the soup?

Kiddies, it is OKAY to pour bad soup down the drain.  Mistakes happen.  I guess what I’m saying is, if you find yourself in one of these situations,

Stop Saving the Soup!

  1. man, I always eat my soup… i tend to suffer through things, I need to stop saving it! It's hard though!

    1. I know! There are some things that can be saved with a little thrift and ingenuity, but metaphorically speaking, you can't always save the soup.
