The juicy part
Conversation between me and my 11-year-old, T:
Me: Hey, we're going to be having different stuff for breakfast this week. We're going HEALTHY!
T: Are we going to have more of that good orange juice?
M: Well, we were, until you drank the whole bottle this weekend. That stuff is expensive and you have to save some for school mornings.
T: But isn't it good for me?
M: Well, yes....but you can't drink so MUCH of it, at one time. And it's for breakfast.......
T: So you got something different, that's good for me, but you don't want me to drink TOO much.....?
M: That's right.
T: That's wack. Why don't you just go back to the yucky OJ - then I won't want to drink it so much.
Sometimes, this whole new diet-healthy-eating-thing seems like a wacky (wack) idea.
