Cleaning the plate

My wife has always told me, “don’t eat everything in your plate, leave something!” It is her believe, and her culture’s, that only poor people eats everything, and that if I do so, it will show I am dying of hunger, and thus, poor. If it were so, what’s wrong with being poor? Why will I leave food on the plate, food that I really like, to pretend what I am not? I am poor, poor, poor!

That custom, though, would be an easy one to follow if the food was bad. That’s something impossible when wife cooks, or mum. No kidding.
