"Mom," my eleven-year-old daughter said. "I have a new favorite snack."
"Oh, yeah," I said. "What's that?"
What? I had expected to hear it was some sort of chip or cookie. Sugar cubes were not on the radar screen. "You're kidding," I said. "Why are sugar cubes your new favorite snack?"
"Our teacher fed them to us in school."
I couldn't believe it. Teachers are feeding our kids sugar cubes in school? This needed a serious explaination! "What do you mean, your teacher was feeding you sugar cubes in school?"
"We did a science experiment with them, and since we were good, our teacher let us eat them when we were done."
"Listen kid," I said. "You're not eating sugar cubes here! You had better find a new favorite snack. How about a banana?"
She gave me a funny look and walked away.
So much for bananas.
Maybe bananas STUFFED with sugar cubes . . . :)ReplyDelete
Ahh. Now there's an idea! LOL!Delete
My mom used to let us slice a banana and sprinkle sugar on it. It was delicious, but I never let my kids do it. My mom let us have way too much sugar.ReplyDelete
I'd better not tell my daughter about this, or she'll be requesting a banana sprinkled with sugar!Delete
Bananas are nasty anyway, I'd rather have the sugar cube too.ReplyDelete
Ha! Hey now, I like bananas, and they help repel mosquitos!Delete
LOL. Love this post. :)ReplyDelete
Silly, isn't it? LOL!Delete
*LOL* Sugar cubes for your daughter and flour for your son. Funny taste buds!ReplyDelete
Ha! My kids are seriously messed up!Delete
It must've been a fun science experiment!ReplyDelete
I think they were trying to make a sinkhole using the sugar cubes on saltine crackers. I have no idea how that worked - or why the teacher fed them the sugar cubes and not the saltine crackers. :)Delete
LOL. How can you compare sugar cubes with banana?ReplyDelete
Yeah, I know. But I had to try. ;)Delete
LOL..I just love reading your posts in the morning. It has become a happy ritual. I also can't help laughing out loud at Judy's reply.ReplyDelete
I'm glad you're enjoying my silly life! Yes, Judy's comment was hilarious!Delete
