Things I saw in my kids’ school cafeteria today

A lunch lady in a faux fur vest and purple apron.
School-issued lunches consisting of a thin slice of unnaturally colored mystery meat on a hot dog bun.
Offensively indiscriminate use of ketchup and mayo packets.
A child with an entire salt shaker in her lunchbox.
So much open-mouthed chewing.
Fruit cocktail from a can.

    Are takis popular there? Because they’re all the rage here in urban Memphis…

      I haven’t seen them here in Virginia. I’ve only seen them further south. There were a lot of potato chips in that room though.
