So I go by Sprouts on the way to pick up the kids from school. (It’s kind of like a Trader Joe’s.) And they have these great crunchy Bavarian pretzels. Basically a larger gourmet size dehydrated pretzel.
So I pick up a bag of them and have it in the car to give some to the kids, because they are generally ravenous when I pick them up from school.
The kids get into the car, we’re heading down the road and they find out I have pretzels in the car.
“YAY! Those are my favorite!” my son quips.
And I start to feel the inner satisfaction a mother feels when she knows she got it right.
And then he goes on: “They have this interesting texture that when you break them makes the edges kind of rough. And when your lip itches from the salt, you can scratch your lip with the pretzel.”
…… :blink-blink: ……
Umm, gee – that was not at all what I expected to hear……!
My kid… go figure.
