Lunchtime conversation

The girls are eating fruit, and I'm trying to get Joseph and Edwin fed

Kathleen: Let's pretend this is magic fruit that does magical things.  What would it do, Mommy, if it were magical fruit?

Me: (pause) It would make everyone happy and obedient and they would do everything the first time with me having to ask them again.


Kathleen: Sophia, what would the fruit do, if it were magical fruit?

There's nobody like a mom to ruin Let's Pretend.

I would give anything to have a piece of that magical fruit!

Dude! You spoiled the magical fruit karma!

Just US said...

I love your version of magical fruit!

If you really want to blow the girls' minds, buy some Synsepalum dulcificum online, a.k.a. Miracle Fruit. (You can get it in freeze-dried tablets to suck/chew). For up to about an hour afterward, sour and/or bitter things will taste sweet. The effect is most commonly demonstrated with lemons/limes, but I've heard of beer being used too.

Weird, huh?
