The Tamale Tale

ME: Gideon, would you like a tamale for dinner?

GIDEON (Age 6): No, thanks. I don’t like tamales.

ME: Just try one bite of this one.

GIDEON: *SIGH* OK. (Picks up the tamale to take a bite)

ME: Gideon, wait! You have to take the wrapper off first!

GIDEON: You do?

ME: Yes, other wise, it will be like eating hay.

GIDEON: Oh! No wonder I never liked tamales!
