Whenever I see creative, but perfectly legible, spelling by children I wonder if we take dictionaries far too seriously.

Seems legit to me and and who am I to argue with a qualified nutritionist.

I’m totally with her on brusle sprouts and I could live my entire life and never miss another orberjeen.
I notice that lasany(a) is on both lists, which would make it a sometimes food?

Also I’m adopting Cor, Jets! as the new official spelling.

I didn’t know what a corjet was, but it sounded french, so googled “courgette”, ah, Zucchini.

I actually really like Zucchini raw. I don’t understand why people insist on cooking it down to a flavorless mush when it tastes great raw, and has a pleasing firmness.


ETA, you can keep your eggplant though. Isn’t it from your planet @SmashMartian? It couldn’t have come from Earth.

No way. Corjets are from Mars, Orberjeens are from Venus.

Or possibly Australia.

I agree, lasany good, lasanya bad.

Setting the path for psychological dominance by constructing subtle double-binding dilemma: “but I wanted Lasany, not Lasanya”. (also Sushi but not Fish, though this is resolvable, just requires some attention and thus, confirms the hierarchical order).

That seems like pretty broad tastes for a 7 year old. With an aversion to green things.

She doesn’t like peas? Freshly-shelled peas?

…and hamburgers? Maybe Cory’s feeding her canned hamburgers?

You’re living in dreamtime, baby (you want an eggplant parm)
It’s time to wake up, ooh
You’re living on dreamtime, baby (you want a corjet)
It’s time to shape up

There’s a depth of humorous responses I could plumb relating to aboriginies, but I’ve decided they’re all racially and culturally insensitive and hypocritical seeing as I’m a white male american.

This is your palate.

This is your palate raised in Britannia.

Any questions?

Canned cheeseburgers is a thing?

I think that your daughter may also be a Mr. Saturn.

She does a good job with spelling things out phonetically.
And I have to agree with her opinion of cooked carrots (yick), but it makes me kind of sad that she doesn’t enjoy gwakamoly. Maybe she just hasn’t tried the good stuff?

PS: Fish fingers? Is that the same thing as fish sticks?

Whole chickens too:

Whaaaa…? That’s just… confusing. I’m not sure what to do with this knowledge.

If you think about it too much, modernity is just weird.
