  1. Same friends mom made fishsticks for dinner.
    i didnt know what they i claimed i was alergic to them
    My mom made french toast with salt and black pepper vs sugar or jam/ surup

    1. Went to a low budget dinner theatre at age thirteen to see Pirates of Penzance. Went through te buffet with my best friend. Halfway through dinner she says, I have a piece of chicken in my teeth, I look at her plate and tell her "but you're eating fish". She gets a horrified look on her face and says "this is fish? I thought it just tasted nasty". She will eat certain fish on occasion now but is mostly vegetarian at home.

        1. My Best Friend when I was in Kindergarten lived two doors down from me. During the summer, she ate boiled hot dogs and lipton cup a soup every damn day for lunch, and I actually ENVIED her because I’d have to eat boring old pasta fagiole, or swiss chard and potatoes, or sandwiches made with salami on bread that had a hard crust!

          1. When I was about 5 I made a bologna sandwich. It had the toughest lettuce that I have ever eaten. Later Mom said, who got into the cabbage? ;-)
