the truth will out

Immediately after watching a commercial for V-8, where a man feeds his veggies to his dog, Blake said, "I love to eat my vegetables. I'm going to be stron."

I agreed with him.

"Mom, can I please have some vegetables?"

"Um, yes. I think. All I have right now is spinach. Do you want a bowl of salad?"

"Yes, please."

"Wow. Okay. Do you want avocado on it or the huckleberry dressing?"

"No, thank you. Just the salad."

And then he ate a bowlful of spinach leaves plain. !!!

"Mom, I ate them all gone. Because I want to be big and stron so one day I can beat up on Dad." (emphasis mine)

Gross. I can feel the chalkiness in my mouth just thinking about dry spinch. What a silly boy you have. I love him.

I don't think I really liked spinach that much as a child but now I eat it weekly. I use it in place of lettuce on sandwiches and wraps as well as the occasional salad.

Oh man, you could work this being "stron" thing in your favor!
