We were just eating our dinner of mac and cheese and baked beans, and Lila saw the piece of pork in the beans.
“What’s that?” she asked.
“Pork,” I said. “Do you know where pork comes from?”
So ensued a conversation of how ham and pork are meat from a pig and how hamburger is meat from a cow.
Lila, for the record, was not impressed. She quickly claimed, “I will not eat any more of those sandwhiches!” But then I reminded her about her favorite sandwhich, a hamburger with extra pickles. “Extra pickles….” She bemoaned her decision and I thought she was reconsidering.
I turned to Eva and asked, “What about chicken nuggets, where do they come from?”
She turned her head slowly to me, her eyebrows furrowed and nose wrinkled, making a face at me.
“McDonald’s,” she slowly answered.
