Eat Your Veggies

I was trying to convince my son, Adi, to eat his vegetables one evening. I knew he wanted to grow big so that he could trounce any bully, so...

Me: Adi, finish your vegetables.

Adi: Why?

Me: Look at me. I finish my veggies. When I was your age, I ate all my veggies, too.

Adi: And...??

Me: Well, you'll grow strong. And when you reach my age, you'll look like this... (I roll up my sleeves)

Adi: Thin?

I know, I know. We sometimes get wrapped up in our own perceptions, in our private images of ourselves. It's good to get the real score from the little people who haven't yet donned a pair of edit-visors... sometimes. That way, we learn to see things the way they are.

Ah, quite a cupful of reality, eh?

Ok. Quit laughing. Just go eat your veggies. :-)
