Pasta

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Today, I had this conversation with one of Jack's teachers:

Teacher:  Jack doesn't eat his lunch when we have spaghetti.

[lightbulb on over Momma's head]

Me:  Jack doesn't like pasta.

Teacher: (eyebrows up)  REALLY?

Me:  Nope.  I've tried to give him spaghetti and ravioli and he won't eat it.  Come to think of it, he doesn't like mac and cheese, either.

Teacher:  You know what?  YOU'RE RIGHT!  But ... all the other kids love that stuff!  And Jack, well, he eats so much!  How could he not like that?

Me:  (laughing)  I have no idea.  But I will pack him something different for lunch on those days.

What's to like?  Pasta.  Fuggedaboutit.
Here's to our likes and dislikes.  Even when they're crazy.  (Sorry Jack, but not liking mac and cheese is just wackadoo.)

Because mac and cheese makes the world go round (for some of us, anyway),

  1. While I agree about the mac and cheese - I bet if you fixed the Irish leprechaun offspring of yours potatoes - he would eat them!
