After school today, Seth and I took a detour to Target. The zippers on his backpack malfunctioned so we were in the market for a new one. He picked out a red and black one that was only 9.99. Good. Then, we headed over to the grocery section to round up some lunch box supplies. Turkey, pastrami, cheese, yogurt, etc.
SETH: "Mom, PLEASE."
ME: "Well, they aren't good for you. They're processed--not even real food."
SETH: "Mom! They have the word 'lunch' in them!"
ME: Impressed once again at his use of logic. "I know, but there are better things to eat."
SETH: "Everyone else at school has them."
ME: Calling upon the powers used during my own childhood, "Seth, if EVERYONE jumped off a cliff, would you?"
