chris has always had a penchant for food competitions. food competitions, you ask? yes...things like jalapeno eating contests and burrito eating contests. in fact, he claims he could eat three chipotle burritos in one sitting. i tend to disagree, and i'm not even sure i want to find out if that is true, but either way, he is always willing to take on a food dare.
one day, our neighbors were over and we got to talking about this side of chris. somehow, we got on the subject of how much ketchup chris could gulp down at once. he decided that he could for sure drink (it makes me gag to even write this) a sam's club sized bottle of ketchup in under three minutes. no one believed him...after all a sam's club bottle is something like 64 ounces of ketchup.
so the dare was taken, and chris decided he needed to practice before he actually took on the task of drinking all that ketchup. the neighbors went home (probably in disgust), and chris pulled out the biggest pot he could find. he asked me to time him as he drank the whole pot of water at once. i warned him that that would be stupid to try, that he couldn't drink that much ketchup, let alone that much water in such a short period of time. and as a matter of fact, i told him it was even dangerous to try.
but he didn't listen. he started gulping the water as fast as he could, and i timed him, just waiting. all i had to wait was about 30 seconds...and after 30 seconds and almost a gallon of water, he spasmed a little and threw it all up.
and that is when his dreams of winning a ketchup drinking contest were shattered.
