Cause they are 8

My bff’s daughter is a vegetarian. And there is nothing wrong with that. My sister in law and niece and nephews do not eat meat. My brother he is a meat eater. My bff, she too is a meat eater.

However  her daughter is out for the weekend and she is a vegetarian and they are having vegetarian lasagna. Yuck. This is the thought in my head. Bff’s son, who is my son’s bff in turn announces that he hates vegetarian lasagna. He was informed in no uncertain terms that he must at least try the lasagna.

My son suddenly pipes up and asks that his bff can still come for supper. We are having bacon eggs and hash browns. And of course the response was yes, yes you guys can have supper together.

Bff’s son: Because I love bacon!

I laughed. I admit it. Because really who asks an 8 year old to make a choice between bacon and vegetarian lasagna. Dude will always choose the bacon.
