I happily took a seat in my kitchen with a bowl of Vegetable Barley soup and a handful of cheesy Goldfish crackers. Hannah licked her fingers as she polished off her Kid Cuisine burger and fruit snacks. Then, she stared at me, eyes wide open and totally horrified, as I tasted my first spoonful.
Me: What’s up, Hannah?
Hannah: You’re starting to get old.
Me: What?! Why are you saying that?
Hannah (getting agitated, because the answer is SO obvious): You’re eating soup.
Me: And that means I’m old?
Hannah (totally exasperated): Old men. Who are sick. Eat soup.
Me: Yes, they do. But sometimes young kids who are healthy eat soup, Hannah. And other people, too.
Hannah (dramatic eyeroll; heavy sigh): Yeah, right.
