Q: My wife insists on spending ridiculous amounts of money at specialty cheese shops. What's wrong with a brick of orange from No Frills?

Angela says...
Have you tasted the difference?? It's night and day. How often is this happening? If it's daily, then maybe your wife has a spending addiction. If it's only occasionally, like for a special weekend meal or a dinner party (and you can afford it), what's the harm? It's better than spending money on makeup or shoes—which you two can't enjoy together. I guess the answer to your dilemma depends on whether your wife has any other vices. If she doesn't, I’d rank having good taste in cheese among the best problem to have since you can savour it together.

P.S. Does she buy nice bread and wine to go with it? If so, I'm on my way over.

Derek says...
Please do not fault your partner for having good taste. Quality cheese is one of the finer pleasures in life; learn to embrace it. First, try one of the varieties of white cheese offered by your local grocery store, and then work your way up to the cheese boutique. You are about to embark on a long journey, but you can get there quickly with your partner at your side. This is a joyous time. Eat it up!
