Ryan's New Lunch Menu
by Margaret Furey
My son, Ryan Furey, went to a private school for pre-K. He was a very picky eater and the only kind of meat he would eat would be CHICKEN ... So, for this reason, I would pack his lunch everyday for school.
One day I forgot, but the teacher said that it was okay because the school always ordered extras for just this reason. She told me that HAMBURGERS were going to be served.
I was worried all day that he was going to be so hungry when I picked him up because I could not get him to even take a bite of a hamburger!
To my surprise, the teacher told me that he ate his entire lunch.
On the ride home that afternoon, I was telling Ryan how proud I was that he ate all of his lunch, including his hamburger.
His reply was "Yep, but Mommy, I didn't eat that Big Sausage Patty."
I had to pull the car over, I was laughing so hard!
