“Is that mine?” He asked wide eyed.
“Yeah,” I said. “I haven’t made you a smorgasbord for ages, have I?”
“Can I have it in front of the tele please?” He asked with hands in praying position & bottom lip bulging. “Go on, it is Sunday.”
How could I resist. 😉
“Go on then, get your table ready.”
We went out for lunch today & so as none of us were particularly hungry, it seemed the perfect excuse for an icky-picky dinner.
When he was younger this would have been his favourite dinner. He liked the idea of being able to make choices about what he ate & in what order he ate it.
Once while staying with my Mum for the weekend she asked;
“What would you like for dinner Zephy?”
He thought carefully before answering.
“Errm, a smorgasbord please.”
Mum was a bit confused as what he was talking about but he took her to the kitchen a talked her through the makings of the perfect buffet selection.
Everyone loves a precocious child, right? 😉
Back to the tele room, I returned to find that he had already devoured the tuna mayonnaise with caper pinchos, tomatoes & even the leaves of coriander.
“How you getting on there?” I asked chuckling to myself. “You enjoying that are you?”
“Yeah.” He replied smiling. 🙂
I’ve done my job.
