Do you ever look at your children and wonder where they came from? As in, how in the world could someone you helped create act or feel that way? Johnny takes it in stride. He despises few things in this world. The two things on the list are bubble gum (do NOT chew in front of him. You also do NOT want to be around homeboy when he steps in gum that someone has spit out. It is truly disgusting to him.) and mustard (even though I love mustard, Johnny will not eat it on his sandwiches). So, along comes little Evelyn with her arms full from the fridge. She brings me the loaf of bread, grape jam and...mustard. And asked that I put them all together. She has ordered "purple and mustard" enough times in a row to warrant documentation. Hilarious. We have, however, brainwashed our children to believe that bubblegum is poison. When they see it in the grocery stores in the 25 cent dispenser stands, they point and say, "Ew! Gum! Gross!" Totally awesome.
