“I guess we’ll just have to fill up on S’moreos.”
Scene: summer camp, Kindergarten through 2nd grade
Cookout lunch where kids bring ingredients for grilled tortilla pizza.
What happened as reported by a 7 year-old:
“Brittney, the counselor-in-training, kept trying to make us all eat our celery, there were carrots too. No one liked the celery. It was really stringy, but we had to eat three pieces. We tried to give them all to one kid who liked it, some kids threw them under the table, and then they burned the pizza so we had to eat black tortilla pizzas, and then we got extra S’moreos because we were so hungry.”
So many symbolic and real implications, but just wanted to share this quick gem.
Side note, this child eats spinach salad, kohlrabi, beet salad and a variety of veggies. She doesn’t like plain, raw celery among other things. Are children not allowed to have opinions/preferences about food? She also discovered she prefers S’moreos to the classic S’more.
