Do You Want Fries With That?
My daughter's appetite boggles my mind. She usually eats like a bird. When we dine out, she orders from the kid's menu, takes two bites and says "K, I'm done. Let's go." The rest of us haven't even started eating yet.
Or . . . when it's dinnertime, she will say "I'm not hungry" and then at 10:30 p.m. say "I'm starving!" and make herself toast and eggs while everyone else is trying to get to sleep.
Today after school, I called Claire from the road and said "I'm pulling into McDonalds, do you want a smoothie?"
She said "Yes!! And I also want a 6 piece chicken nuggets . . . a hamburger . . . and can I have some fries too??"
Are you kidding me???? Where does she think she's going to put all that food -- in a hollow leg?
She must have forgotten to take lunch money this morning.
Post Script: In case you are wondering, the white stuff is flour from an ultimate game of Steal the Flag.
