Magical Fruit

Me: “What two servings of veggie or fruit are you having with dinner? I’ll let you choose.”

Little Miss Thing, age 7: “I’ll have carrots and ranch.”

Me: “And what else?”

LMT: “That’s two things.”

Me: “Ranch is not a veggie. Try again.”

LMT: “OK, then grape jelly. Grapes are fruit.”

Me: “Nope. Try again.”

LMT: “I want some… Coffee. It comes from beans.”

Me: “Absolutely not.”

LMT: “You never let me do what I want.”
