Bean Dip?

Again, not a recipe--sorry! "Pass the bean dip" refers to a quick technique for deflecting too-personal questions from people who have no business asking them. Like the lady you've never met before at your husband's company party who asks you if you aren't concerned that your kids aren't going to get into college. To which you give a quick reply and then ask if she wants some...

Hat tip to Sebastian who links to The Happy Homeschooler's essay on the merits of bean dip.

I'm glad you enjoyed this. I wasn't sure if this was an old concept for most homeschoolers. I do really like the essay. Thanks for linking.
