I had a big laugh yesterday. For Christmas,
I gave my 9 1/2 year old granddaughter 3 books by KD McCrite.
Skylar decided to read the last one, Chocolate Covered Bologny, first, but her mother told her no, she needed to read them in order, so after she had read a few pages, she put it back, and started the first one. But, being a literal person, and both chocolate and bologny are favorites of hers, it played on her mind. She tells me that her mother never buys bologny (yes I know it is spelled Bologna in the 'other half of the world, but not at our house) so anytime I know she is going to be here, I try to pick up a package for her. Yesterday morning, she wanted fried bologny and eggs for breakfast...Later in the day she noticed there was one slice left, and told me about reading in that book, and how chocolate covered bologny sounded so good.
She grabbed the chocolate syrup, and 1/2 slice of bologny, and went to smearing, about 20 seconds later, she spit it out, licked the chocolate off, and threw the bologny into the trash.
Oh, and if you are interested in purchasing these 3 books, I noticed that on Amazon.com they have a 3 book deal right now, all 3 for 17.99. They are well worth that price.
