Food Child Abuse

There are many ways that children get abused. 

This one was by food! 

The parent was feeding their child a HUGE bag of Cheetos for breakfast. 

The bag was fully ripped open down the middle, so it couldn’t really be closed and nothing would be left anyway. 

If that wasn’t enough, on the airplane, the parent then gave the child 2 more bags of PopCorners.

Honestly, I felt bad for the kid(s), who seemed like good, sweet kids. 

But this is not the way to teach them to eat without getting them sick. 

Trying to judge people for the positive: maybe the parent thought they were doing something nice for the kid by letting them eat all these snacks–like a treat. 

But honestly, this wasn’t doing the child any favors, no matter what the flavors!Β  πŸ˜‰

Taste Like Nothing

It’s hot in the Florida sun, especially at the beach.
So, I was interested in ordering a cup of Thai bubble tea with Boba.
I ask the lady:What does it taste like?

Lady answers:The boba [taste] is like nothing!

I ask:Can you put in a lot of boba?

She says:Tea sweet, but no more boba.

I ask: Why?

She tells me: Because it’s nothing.

I try again: But if it’s nothing, why can’t you put in some more?

She says:It’s tapioca, but it taste like nothing and I can only put in a handful.

My final try: Ok, give me some Thai tea with the boba in it. 

Lady:Are you sure? It tastes like nothing.

Me: Yes, yes, yes.  I love boba with nothing taste, just make sure the tea is plenty sweet!   

Like my dear dad used to say:Β 

The food here is terrible, and on top of it the portions are too small!Β  πŸ˜‰

Ever Sit On A Cow

Ben and Jerry’s has great ice cream and an earthy, peaceful decor. 

This cow comes with child’s seat is a good use of the store’s “real estate.”

Both country fresh milk from the farm cow and a kid-friendly environment too.Β  πŸ˜‰

The Sniffer Isn’t Working

Someone really had a premonition posting this sign before Covid!

The sign says simply:

Smell Me!!

The response to this now-a-days would be the person with Covid yelling back:

I can’t smell (or taste) anything!

Now frustrated, the other person replies:

But please, please smell me. 

Second person, tries and tries again:

Sniff, sniff–darn, the sniffer just isn’t working. 

Get out the smelling salts!

Six months later, I still can’t smell a skunk in the same room. 

What type of crazy pandemic is this!  πŸ˜‰

Meat On A Spit

Nothing like loads of meat roasting on the spit over a fire.

The fat drips and the meat is smoking and juicy hot. 

Is it the animal in us or do we just know good food when we see it?

Schwarma or a BBQ, you can taste it!

And it hits the spot right on like nothing else can.  πŸ˜‰

Garden of 5 Senses

Garden of Five Senses in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. 


I hear it and I see it, but I can barely believe it.  


I can touch it, and I can even taste it, but that’s going too far. 


I can smell it, but in a good way.Β πŸ˜‰
