Why Fast Food Had Better Watch Out!

Others who had my "bug" that was neither a cold nor the flu had said it lasts about ten days.  They were right.  And so I was not yet fully back to myself last week for teaching music but at least I was able to actually teach rather than show videos like the previous week.  It was during that class with the second and third graders that I got such a good laugh.  And it has come back to bring a smile many times since.

With a throat that needed support I had brought my unsweetened tea into class which was prominently marked with a big yellow M.  The kids had been told during the pre-class opening to take it easy on me that day since I wasn't feeling well and so it was on their minds.

When one of them proclaimed loudly....You have been to  (Insert name of Ronald's place here)!!
They all began to add their two cents.  All of a sudden one voice rose above all of the rest.  "NO WONDER YOU ARE SICK if you are eating there!" .  There was a chorus of agreement among the little bodies.

Hilarious!!

I wonder if it is just homeschoolers who are getting the message about eating healthier or if those fast food places are "going down" in this next generation.

2nd - 3rd graders are my favorite elementary ages. They are still young enough that they actually listen to the teacher but old enough to be able to do an activity and they do and say stuff like that. What fun...

Oh my! I do hope not. Yesterday we had lunch at a fast food place (our monthly splurge). It is comfort food for us. LOL! Though I am glad that children know that it should not be anything more than an occasional meal. Hope that you are feeling better every day.
