I didn’t come up with this application to date my daughter, but recent events have forced me to think about adopting it. For several weeks, my daughter Maggie has been packing a very specific lunch:
- Peanut butter and banana sandwich
- chocolate milk
- fruit by the foot
Now, that’s a lot for Maggie to eat, but I’ve happily packed it thinking that she’s going through a growth spurt. Gina, much more observant than I am when it comes to the eating habits of children, questioned the addition of the fruit by the foot as that is something Maggie has never liked. In her subtle way, Gina got Maggie to reveal that she did in fact not like fruit by the foot, but that this new boy who moved to her school from Colorado does like them. He’s a very nice boy and she’s been luring him into sitting next to her at lunch each day with the promise of a fruit by the foot.
So, I think I need to get prepared. I’ve copied the original and updated it/customized it…
