|Mmm... forbidden cheese curls... mmm...|
G just chomped away and spat the gunk out in the trash after he realized how un-tasty it was. Elf started in on the, "Mmm! Crunchy!" thing just as I was entering the room. All I could think was, what do they spray their packing materials with? Everyone had to rinse their mouth and generally knock it off/listen to me yell for a bit. Elf was kicked out of the room for over an hour. I'm just grateful no one swallowed these things.
I was upset most particularly at Patrick and G (what with their being 18 and almost 17) for trying these "curls," but I couldn't very well kick them out of their own room. I removed the box. I'm still not sure what to do with these "curls." I think there must be a place to recycle them in town somewhere. In the past we've recycled the old-fashioned "peanut" type things at the postal shop near McDonald's. I'll have to dig through the box and make sure no half-bitten ones are inside before I try this getting rid of packaging materials trick again...
Emperor had no consequence. Why?
See, he's allergic to milk... so... he didn't go try the cheese curls. Smart boy.
I am going to turn into my father soon. When my brother and I were riled as kids, he would frequently dispense such gems of wisdom as, "Stop ramming around!" and "Pick up a toy and play with it!" and "Knock it off!" Add, "Don't eat the cheese curls!" to the list? And I will be practically him.
On the one hand, I'm REALLY MAD at my kids, who should know better! On the other, these "curls" really do have a very similar look and texture to cheese curls. I can't imagine we're the only family that has gone through a similar experience.
