  1. We raised our kids so they had to try whatever was served unless they absolutely did not like it.

    Two of my kids don’t like meatloaf. One of them doesn’t care for acorn squash. None of us have ever had liver that we like. Out of four, that ain’t too bad.

  2. Beautiful, Claire. LMAO at “Coppertone”. I used to think “leftover candle wax” or “clotted hand lotion”, but from now on “Coppertone” it is. Brevity is the soul of wit and all that.
    Thanks for the day’s lift.

  3. Two things came to mind: seeing my four-year-old son early in the morning,he had found some Baker’s chocolate in the pantry. When we discovered him, chocolate drool was running down the front of his shirt. He could not get the taste out of his mouth soon enough. (That was 25 yrs ago!!)

    B. At my house, anything less than very dark chocolate is “un-chocolate”. Imported is best- but Dove Darks will do in a pinch, thank you very much!!

  5. You really want to help kids eat healthy? Make chocolate taste like brussel sprouts.

  6. Claire, You always make me smile. I have been learning beers the past year as I hang around the entrepreneur community and we have nearly 60 micro-breweries around us. One tasting I attended had so much actual information from the master brewer (who is the first in the state and helped write the legislation in the state) along with the beer and food pairings that I could not remember half of it. His place is at a Benedictine Monastery and not open to the public. But the products are in some stores.
    Anyway, one of the pairings was with an amazing chocolate truffle. I had not enjoyed such an experience before, but will again as they just opened a tap room a few blocks from my office. Life is too short for bad chocolate, whisky, cigars, or food. Writing like Claire’s fits right in with those pleasures.

    Oh, and I go to great expense to keep fungus off my feet. Why would I put it in my mouth? (Stock answer to mushrooms)
