Every year I make cranberry sauce, since I was about 7 years old and it's always met with skepticism when I'm a guest in someone's home. One such host shall remain nameless as the family is known to the list. I arrived at the home to find the veritable can of berries on a plate sitting there -- ridges and all. It was tucked away in the back, but there nonetheless. I put mine in the front and it was eaten. The can was not.
Scott asked, "Why do you want an orange?!" I explained why -- "Ewww, gross!" Once again, he was converted.
