Such a sacrifice for the greater good

Actual conversation (more or less) with Husband

Me: Dear, I found this really easy recipe for Beer Bread. In fact, it's called Beyond Easy Beer Bread. And if I bake it, well, may I use a bottle of your beer from the fridge or should I run out to Flanagan's and pick up something less worthy?
Him: Uh -- well --
Me: Don't worry, I'll understand if you'd rather I left the good stuff for actual drinking.
Him: Is any special kind recommended? Like, do light or dark beers work better?
Me: This recipe doesn't really specify. Although it's possible that a cheapy like Badd Light probably wouldn't work as well.
Him: I meant... well, um, okay. (Nods)
Me: Are you sure?
Him: Yes. You can take a bottle (gulp) of my beer to bake beer bread.

Well, I did promise I wouldn't take any of his favorite specialties like New Glarus Spotted Cow or Fat Squirrel. And maybe, just maybe, I'll have to visit a couple of local brew-pubs to get some goodies for his birthday or Christmas. Because, you know, he's making such a sacrifice for the good of his wife's baking. And the family's holiday eating. And all that.

And if everyone really likes it, and I need to make a double batch next time....
