A Cherry On Top!

Last week we went to Jack In The Box one evening for a quick dinner. On their sign outside, they have a picture of a big strawberry shake. Will announced upon arrival that he wanted "One Of Those!"

We explained that if he ate his chicken, we'd get him a shake and he complied. Excited about his purchase, he came with me to the register.

"What kind of shake do you want?" I asked.

"What kind has that red thing in it?" he asked, looking at the cherry on top of the whipped cream in the picture outside.

I explained that I thought those came in every flavor, but he chose strawberry just to make sure the cherry was part of the package as pictured.

As he ate the cherry with relish, he exclaimed, "Mama, this tastes just like Ibuprofen!!!"

I love that comment about Ibuprofen! You should send that to Reader's Digest. We need to go to lunch soon. Jackie Lynn

Isn't artifical flavoring a wonderful thing?

Thank goodness for blogs! The rest of us would miss out on all of this if we couldn't read about it. I can just hear Will's voice as he said it.
