That's right.

My Sister in law is retard when it comes to nutrition, only some crazy hyper healthy shit.

When the kids come over, I feed them so much chocolate, chips & candy that they don't sleep for days!

My sister in law is sort of the same way, but more selectively and probably less intelligently so.  What's worse is that she also tends to buy only generic-branded food, without any regard to the trade-off in quality.  So if it tastes like crap, it's worth it because she saved ten cents.

She freaked the hell out that we only had white bread in the house when I was going to make my nephew a sandwich.  I was vindicated when my nephew said it was the best bread he ever had.  He calls it "the good bread".  Come to think of it, he calls most things in our food pantry "the good [food type]".  So naturally I always try to feed him and his sister whatever they want so they can go home & tell their mom how great the food is as Uncle Shayne's house.

I had to excuse myself.

After that I gave them a chocolate bar each. I mean, I'm not a monster.

:x White bread is an abomination.  What kind of crap does your sister buy if white bread tastes good in comparison?

Raz, as an Uncle, it is your duty to spoil her rotten. Feed the kid candy, ignoring any instructions from the parents.

In fact, blow your nose into any written instructions given to you.

Sadly, she lives up in Wisconsin.  I do send toys up all the time though.  And Savings Bonds on her birthday.
I've given it serious thought. I must scorn the ways of my family, and seek a Japanese woman to yield me my progeny. He shall live in the lands of the east, and be well tutored in his sacred trust to weave the best traditions of Japan and the Sacred South together, until such time as he (or, indeed his house, which will periodically require infusion of both Southern and Japanese bloodlines of note) can deliver to the South it's independence, either in this world or in space.  -Lettow April of 2011

"I love how Raz just becomes the caricature for exactly what he is claiming doesn't actually exist...and he doesn't even know it! He is 100% oblivious to the irony of his own statements." - Berkut telling a lie.

Raz is right. -MadImmortalMan March of 2017

I usually buy whole wheat or multigrain, but the wife prefers white-- the kind she gets is pretty decent.

Store-brand whole wheat bread.  It's pretty terrible.

And speaking of store bought bread, Kroger's store brand has to be among the worst. I don't care if it is 99 cents a loaf, it has a chemical smell to it.
