It’s not really meat!
me: How was lunch today?
Jack: the cheeseburgers were disgusting so I ate ice cream instead.
me: I thought you liked their burgers? That’s why I didn’t pack you a lunch…
Jack: I decided to actually LOOK at the burger and it was all ground suckers!!
Jack: They actually stuck out of the top and you could peel them off! That’s not real meat, mom.
me: Ground suckers…?
Jack: Yeah and if you scratch at the side of it, it turns to liquid!
me: Huh? The meat?
Jack: It’s NOT meat.
me: Did you eat any bites at all?
Jack: Yeah, one, and then threw it away.
me: Did you at least eat whatever came with it? Fries? Veggie? Fruit?
Jack: It didn’t come with anything and the veggies are gross and the fruit was soggy grapes! I told you I ate ice cream. It was cookies and cream on a stick.
me: Ice cream for lunch. How nutritious. And so NOT full of the sugar we’re avoiding. Great, Jack.
Jack: At least I had some energy after that!
(Lord only knows what they put in the “ice cream”!?)
