Judge John Hodgman on Dipping Your Fingers in With the Cookie

Alan writes: When I dip my Oreos in milk, I submerge the complete cookie. I as soon as did this in a milk cup shared with my spouse and it yucked her yum, so now we now have our personal setups. But generally my spouse takes one in every of my cookies and dips it in my cup, recreating the state of affairs that disgusted her. Am I liable for reminding her?

First, “yucking one’s yum” doesn’t imply grossing somebody out. It is actively shaming somebody for liking one thing. I may have edited it out, however I needed you to know: That phrase disgusts me. I hate listening to it and I’m nauseated typing it. But that’s simply me. It’s actually not as gross as, say, you sticking your fingers right into a shared milk cup (or, for that matter, the phrases “shared milk cup”). So do your factor! As in your spouse, she is aware of your filthy behavior, so it may very well be a part of some unstated cookie kink you two have going on — however finest to get affirmative consent first.
