Daily Food Poisoning

"Mama," my ten-year-old daughter said, "We have a new news show at school!"

"Oh, yeah?" I said.  "Tell me about it."

"It's called, 'Daily Food Poisoning.'"

"What?" I asked, making a funny face.  "What kind of show is that?"

"My friends and I do it at lunch time. We take stuff from our lunch boxes and mix them together.  Today I mixed the strawberries and applesauce you gave me with some fruit/vegetable juice stuff my friend's mom made.  Then I eat it."

"Seriously?"   I couldn't believe it.

"Then what? Do you vomit?"

She giggled.  "No, I report on it."

"Report on what?  How your parents are trying to kill you by packing healthy food in your lunch boxes?"

"Yeah, pretty much." 

Unbelievable.  Who wouldn've thought healthy food could get so twisted!


  1. LOL. Well, if the purpose of the show is to change the way you look at combining healthy food . . . it's succeeded with me. :P

    Thank you for following my blog!

  2. Are you saying Cheetos and Twinkies aren't healthy foods? The strawberries and applesauce mix sounds pretty good, but when you start adding the hummus and liverwurst, I'm gonna hesitate on that one.

    2. Okay. Let's try this again. I seemed to have fat fingers on the last one. I'm with you on the hummus and liverwurst. The very thought makes me want to vomit.
