Olive oil

You asked if we could both eat healthier
And I was not excited in the least
I tried the kale and beets; they weren't for me
Quinoa and tofu taste a lot like air
I knew you got frustrated as I smirked
You might think to yourself "Is he for me?"
I knew I'd have to try again for you
The next time we made lunch I took the lead
The jar of sandwich spread that I revealed
It made you smile and look me in the eye
The mayo-nnaise was made with olive oil
Less calories and saturated fat
We spread it on the bread from multi-grains
I said the special words; you knew I cared
"...with Olive oil". You said, "I love you too."
