School lunch

School lunch. . .what kind of images, smells, thoughts, memories does that bring up??? Mystery meat? Scary jello? Unknown vegetable mix? Food fights? Bringing sack lunches from home? Lots of fun stuff associated with those words, huh? Mr J and I went and had lunch with Miss E last week. Corn dogs or burrito with cheese was on the menu. It wasn't too bad. Mr J had the corn dog, Miss E and I had the burrito. It is fun to go back and have lunch at school. We try to go once a month with the girls. It does bring back lots of memories. Sitting on those little seats, hearing the lunch lady telling you to be quiet (of course we were not being loud, not us, never), drinking milk out of a carton with a mini straw. Fun stuff. Even more fun than the food is the conversation. Ever really listen to a bunch of 7-year-olds when a teacher isn't around? Oh, my the stories they can tell! It makes me kind of nervous to think about what my kids say about me when I am not around. I probably don't want to know. . . in some things I think it is true that ignorance is bliss. So, the next time you have a few dollars to spare and no plans for lunch, may I suggest the school lunch? I think you will get an earful as well as a stomach full, and go away with a big smile :)
