If You Want to See Dave Dorman Run…Break Out Some Annie Chun

Annie Chun Wasabi Seaweed Chips

Annie Chun Wasabi Seaweed Chips

Our son Jack and I adore wasabi-dusted seaweed snacks. In particular, we like the Annie Chun brand, which we frequently order from Amazon. While Dave loves sushi as much as we do, he’s thoroughly skeeved by our favorite snack. One package of this featherweight treat is just 60 calories, and those of us living in the Midwest can certainly use the iodine (one serving is 65% of the amount of iodine we need in a day). Tonight as we were awaiting the arrival of our Chinese food–the closer we get to San Diego Comic-Con, the less time we have to cook a real meal–Jack and I were downing the seaweed chips. We tried sharing our seaweed sustenance with Dave, who bellowed, “If I wanted to eat newspaper, I would have done so!” This triggered a full-blown force-Dave-to-eat-the-seaweed tackle. We chased him from the foyer through the living room into the kitchen and back to the foyer. He still had the solid defensive moves of his high school days (I guess he’ll make a good assistant football coach after all). We tried getting the wasabi dust near his face. No such luck. Not even one tiny seaweed flake penetrated his personal space. His thyroid would have sent me a personal thank you note, but Dave wasn’t having it. Yet, his fortune cookie predicted “trying new things” would be on his horizon. In Dave’s purview, that translated as “New laser discs, new comics, and new video games.”
