Corn Has You Torn

, , , , | Right | November 23, 2017

(A customer is looking lost near our refrigerated section, so I approach her for help.)

Customer: “Yes, I was looking for the vegetarian tamales you advertised.”

Me: “Oh, you’re in the right place; they’re right here! They’re really quite tasty.”

(I hand her a package, and she proceeds to study it.)

Customer: “They do look good, but I wish they didn’t have corn in them. It’s so bad for you, you know! You can’t digest it, and it makes you fat. It’s really just so bad for you, so I’m trying to not eat it. But I guess I can pick the kernels out when I eat these.”

(The outer portion of tamales is, of course, corn masa. She added the tamales to her basket, which contained only one other item: corn tortillas.)
