Here's an example of the sort of riveting dinner conversations that take place at our house:
Me: "......um......maybe broccoli?....and milk?....and beef, does that count? What would you pick?"
Jesse: "bread, lightly seasoned meat, and milk. I'm thinking bland foods would be tolerable for a longer time. Right?"
Then he continued with a bunch of "which would you pick for the rest of your life" questions like,
chicken or beef?
seafood or beef?
vegetables or beef?
my answers: beef, beef, vegetables
Jesse: "What about pasta? Would you ever consider only pasta for the rest of your life? Or would you pick bread instead?"
Me: "Neither. But I know what Ollie would choose....Oatmeal, bananas, and apple juice"
Oliver, sitting forward very suddenly with eyes WIDE open, "Juice???..................Please?"
Captivating, isn't it?
