Almost every day of the workweek, my lunch is the same:
A bowl of oatmeal.
Quick and satisfying? Absolutely.
Lowered my cholesterol by almost 50 points over the course of a year? Yup!
But when I have a field trip, the daily bowl of oatmeal is tossed aside for something far more adventurous.
On Tuesday, this meant:
- A turkey and cheese sandwich on wheat
- A handful of Hersey kisses
- A sleeve of Pez
Foods chosen because they make me happy but also because they made me the envy of my students.
In the words of one kid:
“It’s the Pez that offends me the most. It’s way over the top.”
Lauding something over children who routinely pester me is indescribably satisfying.
