Not the black ones!
That's what everyone just loves to hear screamed out in public.
But she still yells it.
Mind you, she is not quite four years old and she is just talking about lettuce.
But it still shocks me every time I present a transgression on her plate.
The latest offenders were the benign Oak Leaf and the equally gentle Lollo Rossa.
Rejected only because of the colour of their leaves.
My daughter will only eat salad if it is 100% green. Cucumbers, green peppers, green lettuce, celery -- c'est toute.
Only an almost four year old could make salad complicated. Complicated because of the royal pain the ass it becomes when eating out. Picking apart salads has become the norm and I hate it.
Mind you I'm eating more salad these days since all the offending non-greens make it to my plate instead.
But why can't she be this fussy about ice cream?
I'd rather eat her ice cream rejects than salad.
