we took this name brand ketchup and replaced it
with a regional brand ketchup.
we buried the evidence.
we sterilized the bottle.
we filled it to the same location on the bottle.
we served the ketchup the the dude
"who only likes heinz ketchup"
he didn't notice.
after all that work....
we finally told colin after dinner on tuesday night.
his comment,
"must be the bottle!"
too funny!
psycho parents -
who would do this to a 13 year old?
