So when I pick up take out Chinese food, I’m always asking for extra mustard packets, because I love the hot Chinese mustard on everything. Did you know that you can buy 200 mustard packets from Amazon for $12.00? As Mellanie and I were filling up an empty Tupperware container with mustard packets I said to her ‘did you ever in your wildest dreams ever think there would be a point in your marriage that you would be stuffing mustard packets in a Tupperware container in your house with your husband’? She started crying and laughing at the same time. She mumbled something about how did this happen to her and she wandered away....#chinesemustard
