There are a number of things of inferior quality that I prefer simply because they’re what I grew up liking.
Take for example, vegetables. I know quite well that fresh steamed vegetables are superior to canned or frozen vegetables, and so every week, I buy a variety of fresh vegetables at the grocery store.
…and 9 times out of 10, they end up rotted in my fridge.
Why? Because I grew up on *canned *vegetables. I like those bastard plants nice and soft and salted and easily prepared by spilling an opened can into a microwave-safe bowl and pushing the “1 minute cook” button.
It’s a win/win situation. When people ask, “do you eat fresh vegetables?”, I say, *“heck, I buy fresh vegetables all the time!” * It’s none of their damned business that it’s the canned vegetables that I actually eat. I feed the fresh vegetables to our guinea pig, Snickers, and the kids.
So, fess up. What cheap, tawdry things do you prefer over premium items, simply because they are what you grew up liking? Canned fruit? Frozen vegetables? Wanton women? What?
