Deep Thoughts

Now some of you out there may think that I'm just a good-looking, wealthy, passionate interior designer, shallow stay-at-home mom, but I hope that this post will prove you wrong.

The people who market tortilla chips and salsa are geniuses. They don't even have to do anything, the products just sell themselves. Here me out on this one.

Let's say, hypothetically, of course, that someone is pregnant with baby #3. And this person is hungry, all.of.the.time. So this person scrounges around for something to eat and lights upon the chips and salsa. Said person pours out some salsa and dumps out some chips. Proportions equal.

Before you know it, the chips are gone, but there is still some salsa. Again this person dumps out some chips, now the salsa is gone but there are still some chips left. So, more salsa is poured. And it goes on and on until the jar and the bag are empty.

Unintentional brilliance.

Wishing I had thought of this,



  1. I never realized what a conspiracy it is... Of course I do that without even the excuse of being pregnant! I guess I'm just a pig.

  2. It's the Cheerios and Milk concept. Some rich old man is sitting out there loving our mismeasuring skills!

  3. Sorry to have a late comment...I just wanted to say that I love that pink carpet and the lovely stone work behind the wood stove (that isn't there).

    Jay is also addicted to chips and salsa..they are not my favorite, unless we're at a Spanish resteraunt...and then I may or may not have room for my meal. :)
