Maybe I'm wrong...

Post by piperdave » Sun Sep 27, 2015 7:28 am

Why do I get a little annoyed when the wifey asks me to fill up the sugar bowl with my stillin' sugar? I don't say anything 'cause the little voice inside me says "shut up and do it!" but.....

Eh. I would just be glad you don't have to fight about having stillin sugar in the first place.

Happy wife, happy life.

In any case, the lower abv on a sugar head that will result is better in the long run.

My gal uses my stillin' sugar for her hummingbirds. I just smile and say "Nice to have a good supply, eh?" :)

You are all correct!!! I have absolutely no reason to even think about complaining. I just thought is was funny that I got slightly annoyed. You know that feeling you get when she doesn't order fries and then eats half of yours.

I'm happy as long as it's table sugar and not my malt supply she's using. Grocery stores are open 24 hours, brew supplies are a trip out of town.

Yes. I don't have a problem with wifely pilfering when my supplies are whole grains. Time to go AG?

I've got the opposite problem, my wife has a huge tub of organic cane sugar in the basement, which I'm not allowed to use.
