What's for lunch?

Sitting among four First grade classes in the cafeteria during lunch, is always eventful. However, not always in a bad way. While sitting between a group of students I hear to girls discussing their lunch. After much communication , Gracie turns to me and asks, "Ms. V. what is this made of?" She is pointing to her lunch tray. I'm thinking, "hm, I have no idea what the tray is made of, but I better come up with something and it should be somewhat intelligent. "Meanwhile, she was really asking what the chicken leg she had was made of. I told her, "well, when I was in school, the little legs they served like that where from baby dinosaurs." Her look in response to what I had just told her, said it all. I went on to explain that the CHICKEN leg she was eating, most likely was in fact a chicken leg.

As many things that have change since I was a student have lunch, there are still so many that are still the same.

I can't believe how easily kids accept the fact that they're eating cute little barnyard animals. I always think they'll be scarred for life if they find out, but they always seem to just kind of shrug and keep eating. If PETA only knew...

Reminds me of Terry and Katie eating lunch one day at a meat and three place. He ordered her chicken and she was eating it and then asked what kind of chicken is this? He said "real" chicken. She said I don't like "real" chicken. LOL

At least it was chicken... I'd hate to explain what bologna is made of. :p

When I was a kid we were all convinced that there is an ingredient in hotdogs called earthrobate that is made of earthworms. That is still a mystery to me.
