Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story I do not pause, but immediately say, “Anything but broccoli.” I have the same apprehension for broccoli as she does for apple fritters. I believe that an Apple fritter is basically “a fruit.” Once when I was trying to explain to her that an Apple fritter was a fruit she replied in disgust, “Anybody that believes that is just fruity.” What she does not realize is, I do not mind being fruity. I would rather be fruity than eat any broccoli. The question here is how do you live with someone who is such a veggie-Holic? There could not be any bigger span of separation than between a veggie-holic and an Apple fritter fan. Recently we have come to an amicable agreement, which simply is, she does not talk about broccoli and I do not talk about apple fritters. She does not believe what I say about apple fritters anyway. And, I do not believe what she says about broccoli. So, we have learned to respect each other's differences. That is what makes a relationship good. The only question I have is, and I don't bring it up very often, does an Apple fritter smell as bad as broccoli cooking on the stove? Looking back over our relationship very few things we disagree on and the things we disagree on are not that important that it should affect our relationship. I love what that wise old prophet in the Old Testament said, “Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” (Amos 3:3). It is not what we disagree on; rather, it is what we agree on that is important. If you are going in one direction, you must have the same opinion that it is the direction you are going. Tweet
