Is anything we eat healthy?

Is there anything more revolting to a child than vegetables? It was tough enough to get me to eat after seeing chickens hanging from the door handles.

Those flowers were definitely eyeing my soccer ball and I wasn’t about to let them have it. Sometimes the ref wouldn’t see the foul, and sometimes she would! Oops! “Chawshee!” she’d scream. She didn’t know how to pronounce my name very well, but my cousins still pronounce it like that to this day! Continue reading »
