|Li'l E's* Food Group Report on Grapes|
*Li'l E: "Mom, how much do I have to write about grapes?"
Mom: "As much as you can remember. You know, just go back and remember what we read. Write all that down."
L'il E: "But, Mom....that's so much stuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuufffff."
Mom: "Just do what you remember. What makes grapes, grapes. Why they're important. How unique they are, the different kinds of grapes, why we like them...all that you remember. Just close your eyes and pretend I'm reading to you, and write that down, alright?"
L'il E: "But, Mom....there's so much to wriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiite."
Mom: "Do what you can, what you know, about grapes."
L'il E: (voice brightening up a bit too suspiciously) "Mom, can I use pictures?"
[yes, readers, I totally missed the alert message on this red flag. Should've been paying more attention to the "loophole alert loophole alert" message being sent ...] Yah. And since I was not listening with both ears and brains, I said....
Mom: "Suuuuuure, Li'l E. Go ahead. Pictures will be great."
[famous last words]

*IN OTHER NEWS: This will be the last post entitled Baby E posts.
Name Change Explanation: *sigh*. I do not like negative comments. I do not like negative emails. I do not like people worried and concerned that I am treating Baby E like a baby and not letting him grow. I have received emails and comments this month letting me know that I am screwing Baby E up royally (royally...just couldn't pass that up) by calling him Baby E.
In my culture, "baby" does not mean, a literal baby. It means, "my little one." In this case, meaning is lost in translation. But, the concern about the concern about Baby E concerned me enough that we will publicly change Baby E posts to Li'l E posts.
In the castle, he shall remain, Baby Emperor.
