There was once a time where I was an avid hummus buyer. I would buy my overpriced tub of hummus because it tasted so good.
Sometimes, I would hold off on buying it just in case it went on sale. And then when it never did, I would buy it anyways. After all, good hummus deserves to be in my belly.
Besides, if I never bought the overpriced, delicious hummus, then what other hummus would I eat? I couldn’t just go without hummus…what kind of world would that be?! That’s until I discovered making your own hummus (read: I finally realized that it really is that easy to make your own).
It’s actually the overpriced hummus’s fault for being so overpriced that lead to my hummus-making abilities. I bet it wishes it would have lowered its price a little because, unfortunately, we probably won’t be seeing each other for a while now. Unless it vows to drop its price to 1/2 off.
