All mixed up

allmixedupBoy: We had maple cake for pudding at school today – do you know maple cake?

Mum: Is it made with maple syrup?

Boy: No, it’s half chocolate and half plain and then it’s all mixed up together into one cake.

Mum: Ah – do you mean maple cake or marble cake?

Boy: Marble cake – that’s it! I love marble cake, it’s DELICIOUS! I was BURSTING for double pudding, but I couldn’t because I didn’t eat my peas, and you have to eat EVERYTHING on your plate… Except the crumbs… And the things that are too tricky to eat… And I couldn’t have double pudding anyway because I didn’t have time.

School dinner and brain surgery

D: I LOVE that type of fish we had at school today!

Me: What sort of fish was it?

D: You know the fish that’s crusty?

Me: Was it battered?

D: No, you know the one that’s a flattened circle?

Me: I think the menu said it was fish in batter. Was the fish inside, with a crunchy coat on it?

D: Yes – it was orange outside. How do they make it? Do they kill the fish, then make it into the crunchy shapes, then chop the tail off?

Me: Something like that!

D: Do they suck the blood out first?

Me: Yes, there’s no blood in it when you eat it.

D: And they take the bones out, and the inside bits out… Do they take the brain out?

Me: Yes.

D: Yuck! I’d like to see that. I’d like to try taking a brain out, just to see. I’d have to wear gloves though, because it would be all yucky. Not the gloves I wear outside though – that would be silly – gloves like in my science kit.

D: I LOVE this pudding – it’s the best ice cream ever! I’m going to call it… ‘Chocolate Ice Cream Strawberry World’. No, I got that the wrong way round. It’s ‘Chocolate Strawberry Ice Cream World’ – no, I mean ‘Chocolate Sauce Ice Cream Strawberry World’.

Me: ‘…With a Wafer’?

D: No, I’ve ate the wafer.
…There’s only ONE strawberry left – now it’s just ‘Strawberry World’.
…Now it’s just ‘Spoon World’.
