One of your teachers at the Marilla Cuthbert Academy for Unspeakably Charming Children pulled me aside today and told me this story:
She'd been trying to drum up enthusiasm for vegetables among the ranks, asking each kid about their favorites and hoping to plant a seed that might just grow into some leafy green love.
"I love cucumbers. Don't you love cucumbers?"
When she got to you, you turned the question back: "Do you like children?"
"Of course I like children," was her reply. "Just not in my salad."
Roll on the floor laughing, she said, was your response.
I believe her.
I also believe you might rather eat children than salad.
