I could go on and on about all of the cool things that Jack likes to eat. But that would be ridiculously annoying. So, here's the list of what he does not like to eat:
- macaroni and cheese
Other than the fact that if the laws of quantum mechanics and nutrition were inverted, that's pretty much ALL I would eat, um, that's just weird.
Last night, Mom and Dad and Jack and I went out for sushi. Mom is on a low sodium diet, per her doctors' orders. It's a challenge. (Salt is delicious.)
Anyway, Mom really wanted a cheeseburger, and Dad was pretty much on board. (Cheeseburgers are delicious.) (See also: Cheeseburgers are salty.)
So, I chose a moderately risky roulette game to decide the matter of food. Trying to be a good influence and all. It shook down like this:
Me: Jack, what would you like to have for dinner? Sushi or a cheeseburger?
Mom: Oh...OK, then. Sushi it is.
Dad: Wow! OK. Sushi then?
We had a great time. Mom and Dad were happy with the choice, in that way that you know you've made the healthy choice and then it rocks.
And as for Jack?
He got lost in a fog of miso seaweed deliciousness.
Not so lost, however, that he couldn't DEMOLISH a ridiculous amount of them.
He ate that entire bowl of seaweed salad. And half the soup.
On the way out, I took him over to the sushi bar and taught him to say "arigato" to the sushi chefs. It was so cute that my heart may or may not have splintered into a quadrillion pieces.
Hope you have a day low in sodium and high in satisfaction.
