Eat it again (Mar 1 2017) ------------------------------------------------- Mindy was a difficult child. She always ordered expensive things on the menu instead of the cheeseburgers and chicken fingers on the kid's menu. Then, she'd take one bite and hate it, and refuse to eat more. "If you order something," said her mother. "You're going to finish it." One time, she ordered scallops, thinking they were like scalloped potatoes. "Blech!" she tried to say, but she ended up choking on the scallop. Her dad had to give her the Heimlich Maneuver to dislodge the scallop. It landed back on her plate. Her mother growled. Mindy asked for a cheeseburger. ------------------------------------------------- © 2005-2019 Laurence Simon
