Overheard at the Dinner Table

Mommy: Philip, eat more of your sloppy joe sandwich.

Philip: I don't like that sloppy joe sandwich.

Mommy: Philip, it is not polite to say you don't like the food served to you.

(Long pause)

Philip: Please, I don't like that sloppy joe sandwich.

Please is a magic word. So, did he get to not eat the sloppy joe?

He did not have to eat it but he also did not get icecream for dessert. Actually, his parents didn't really care for the ALDI sloppy joe mix either.

Ann Tillery LOVES Manwich, and that is actually one of the only ways I can get her to eat meat, so I will known NOT to buy the ALDI version. I think that I could eat about anything for ice cream, though ;-) Maybe the roach was coming in for your sloppy joe leftovers since he heard no one else liked it!
