I have a friend and she has kids that like to play Minecraft online with my kids. We had a brief conversation about what she heard them talking about yesterday.
Her: So I overheard our kids talking about dinner when they were playing last night.
Me: Oh yeah…
Her: Yep. I’m over here serving cold cereal because I haven’t been to the store since it snowed, and I hear you’re having, for the second night in a row, organic pasta in a red reduction sauce. Oh, and your kid was totally excited about it.
Me: Want to know a little secret?
Her: Do tell!
Me: We had Spaghetti O’s two nights in a row. I’ve just always called them organic pasta in a red reduction sauce for all the times my kids feel the need to share what I’m cooking with other kids whose moms are listening while they play Minecraft, their teachers, our neighbors, my in-laws, their pediatrician, strangers they encounter in the grocery store, etc., etc.
So the moral of the story, boys and girls, is don’t believe everything you read (or overhear) online.
Now, if you’ll all excuse me, I’m off to the store for the first time in almost a week for more organic pasta in a red reduction sauce.
