This morning, at breakfast.
Gal Smiley, 12 years old: Mom, what can I eat for breakfast?
Me: There’s no bread, I’m sorry – maybe some cereal?
Gal: I don’t feel like it.
Me: There’s lots of fruit, or you could have cheese and crackers, or a bun with butter.
Gal: Do we have any broccoli?
Me: ….uh, yes?
Gal: Will you make me some?
Me: For breakfast?
(Makes a whole head of broccoli. Kid eats it.)
Gal: That was awesome!
Twelve years old is WEIRD.
