“Why would anyone have eight kinds of mustard in their refrigerator?” asked the person who wasn’t looking for mustard.

“Eight, we only have eight!?” the only other person in the house exclaimed.  “We must have emptied the other five or six jars.”

Okay, let’s take a look at the mustard in our refrigerator.  When you open the door the first mustard you spot are the ones in the squeeze bottles.

They stand out because they are in the shelf on the inside door of the refrigerator, the bottles are larger, and in the case of French’s “Classic Yellow” mustard, the brightest.

French’s is the kind of mustard that Tucker and I were slathering on our hotdogs before leaving for the Saturday afternoon movie matinee all those many years ago.

Next to the “classic yellow” mustard is a full squeeze bottle of Gulden’s Spicy Brown Mustard.
