The day I learned beans were a vegetable
Let me set the mood. It’s 11:30 AM and my stomach is growling. I grab my plastic walmart bag(lunch) out of the refrigerator and head to the microwave. A guy at work stops me.
**Guy at work will be talking in blue. I’ll be talking in purple. Just incase you wanted to follow along.**
“Wait, do we need to inspect your lunch?”
“To make sure you have all five food groups.”
“Um, I probably don’t. Let’s see. It’s a bean, cheese and jalapeno burrito, with tomatoes, salsa and sour cream. Oh, jalapeno. Vegetable. Check! Tomato. Fruit. Check! Sour Cream. Dairy. Check! Tortilla for the burrito. There’s gotta be a grain in there. Check! Um, cheese counts as a protein. Check! What are beans anyway?”
“Nice job. Beans are a vegetable, I think.”
“Wait, why are we doing this again?”
“You mean you didn’t hear about the little girl who got her lunch thrown away at school… A turkey and cheese sandwich and a banana! It was because she didn’t have all five food groups. They threw it away and made her eat the school lunch instead, which was chicken nuggets! And, then sent her mom a bill for the school lunch.”
“WHAT? Whoa, I’m gonna blog about this!”
“You should. Well, it did happen like two weeks ago.”
“Um, why didn’t I hear about this sooner? I guess I need to listen to something other than Bobby Bones in the morning. Or, maybe read a newspaper.”
I think I’ll just try to read something news-y, less Bobby on my morning drive equals a cranky Kendra at work. Besides, I learn all sorts of things on the Bobby Bones Show. Like tons of celebrity gossip. Years when important things happened… what year, what year, what year waaaassss it?
