“What’s that guy doing there?” My wife is lying on the other couch with her Nook, after having had dinner. Baby M is snoring in her car seat.

I reply, “Uhhh..nothing.” “Really? Not much at all.”

“You are typing. You can tell me by the fourth-grade style of hunt and peck that you use. When you are thirty, learn to type like an adult. Type something for the TJ’s blog The other one“You do?”

“Like, you said nothing at all.” “Go back to your Nook.”

“Nah! You’re typing something. I think it might be your TJ blog. Is that what you’re reviewing? Is it not your intention to nag me for my Golden Spoon rating? You and your spoons think you’re so smart ….”

“Okay, I’m writing a TJ review.”


“Uhhhh ……Trader Joe’s Light Coconut Milk.”

“What can you possibly write about a can friggerin’ milk?”

I don’t know why, but it seems like we pick it up quite often. To make your Tres Leche cake ‘Cuatro Leche,’ you add some. That is something you should make again. Or last night when I made Thai-style coconut chicken soup with a can. Despite all the spices and other stuff, you still enjoyed the coconut taste, right? Or, didn’t you use it with the mango one more time to make that coconut-mango Rice we both really enjoyed?

“But, it’s still just one can of milk.”

“Well, there is no poop. However, everything at TJ’s cannot be cookie butter or impossibly delicious ice cream or candy bars. They have to get the basics right. Otherwise, it will be a supermarket. Sometimes, I just want all the gimmicks but still need my groceries. You can’t go wrong with writing about these every now and again. As the maple syrup from last week. My dearest of all loves, you are right. Right?”

“….Sure, you’re right. I suppose. Have fun. I’m going to lie down and read my Baby Sitter’s Club Book for the 693rd consecutive time. This one is a favorite of mine. It’s where Mallory must plead and beg her parents for her ears to be pierced. It’s…just…so…good!”

“What else is good?” We’ve probably tried both the light and regular versions of coconut milk. It’s almost impossible to tell the difference, much like Diet Dr Pepper and regular. Although it is possible to tell the difference, the regular version has more coconut richness. However, both are good and contain enough coconut flavor. Because it is made from coconuts that have been jumped at Weight Watchers meetings, I believe the difference in the light version. Ha! That’s a great line to remember. No, that’s not the truth. It’s because they press the coconuts again and it’s the first time that all the ….” have been used.

“Excuse me, I’m Try to read this. What do you think coconuts are worth your time?

“I was just thinking about how smokin I’d look in a coconut top ….”and grass skirt.

“Errr, no. You shouldn’t write that in your review. Or the line about coconuts going through Weight Watchers. That’s stupid.”

“I thought that you weren’t listening.”

“I wasn’t. Mallory nearly has them convinced!

Ladies and gentlemen this conversation didn’t happen. This is why you can write a review about any canned coconut milk you want, regardless of the reason. Sandy and I both like canned coconut milk, and we highly recommend it for any coconut milk needs.
