Don’t Let The Meat Touch The Vegetables

We all know someone like this. Maybe it’s you that is like this. The peas are in a neat pile. The corn is in its own pile. The mashed potatoes and meat have their place too. Each different item is the appropriate distance from all the other items on the plate to ensure that any jarring of the table does not cause them to touch. Heaven forbid that they come into contact with each other. No one can explain why this is so important but that doesn’t matter. This rule must be observed or the meal will be ruined. Don’t tell people like this that all these things touch each other once they are in the stomach; they may never eat again.
