    Tonights i wish i were still a kid moment

    I just finished a nice dinner of some pork roast, rice, and mixed veggies.

    After eating it all i thought to myself "Hmm that was good i really want some more" But then said "Nahh, i don't need more rice....wait, it wasn't rice. Nahh i don't need anymore pork...wait..veggies? I want more veggies?"

    Hmmm...i still remember sitting at this very table for hours trying to outwill my father regarding the spread out veggies on my plate.*

    *still by far the 2nd best trick ever of disposing of veggies.

    My grandmother was a big German woman, could make my father tremble! And she cooked superbly - if it did not contain flour or sugar. See she came here pre war and they were basically subsistance farmers (had the yearly slaughtered pig, cow, etc) - and she bought her sugar and flour in 50 lb barrels. Now let's add the fact she hated spiders.

    So all of the barrels had mothballs around them, including the back of the big freezer she got (on the outside of course), but what it did was taint everything (unless it was fresh vegetables or meat) like mothballs.

    Egads, as a kid we'd take one sniff outside the door and sure enough - MOTHBALLS. We complained bitterly to our parents, but grandma even scared them. Our only survival skill was enabled by the fact that all the little kids sat at card tables in the living room while the adults were in the dining room.

    Enter our skills.

    Cut up and spread around and under plate (they got wise to that).

    Hide stuff in napkins and stuff down socks or into pockets.

    Flush down toilet had it's benefits, but it also allowed your siblings to stuff their food onto your plate and announce they were done and get up from the card table with a clean table. You had time use this technique using precision timing.

    And last of all, was poor Pretzal the fat dachshound. And we made her that way unfortunately.

    Finally after all us kids had moved out, etc, my one Aunt FINALLY took grandma aside and set her straight on the abuse of mothballs!


    BTW all us kids now have a good time laughing about our different food hiding techniques, hehe.

    When I was a "kid" I was made of rubber. I could fall down and bounce back up without even a thought. Nowadays, I have to take inventory before getting up, again.
    Would you like a dream with that?

    As I was beating the pulp out of some guy who tried to get cute with my girlfriend just as the cops were rolling in, I thought, gee, I wish I were still a kid.
