Overheard at our Supper Table ...

By way of prefacing this - Noahkila is a great kid, we love him alot - but the boy WON'T eat fruit and is very particular about which vegetables will ACTUALLY make it to his belly ... If the only thing left on the planet to eat was fruit, like a banana, he would sooner die, then eat it ...
SO, having said this - tonight his 7 year old sister hit the proverbial nail on the head:

Noahkila: Today in Home Ec, we made shish-kebobs.

Mom: Really?

Noahkila: Yup, with steak, and red pepper and onion.

Dad: Red Pepper?

Noahkila: And Onion.

Mom: Did you eat it?

Noahkila: Yup. All of it, even the onion !!

Beetle and Dad look at each other with expressions of shock tempered with horror ...

Dad: Oh Oh. It's the end of the world. Noahkila ate red pepper ... we better write this down ...

Beetle: Actually, it will be the end of the world when Noahkila eats FRUIT.

Dad: Oh yeah. Good point.

Out of the mouths of little sisters ...

We DO love you son ... but one day make your old man happy and eat a pear ... or a plum or something !! PLEASE !!??
