Here on the frontier, There are falling leaves, Although my neighbors are all barbarions…And you? You are a thousand miles away. There are always two cups on my table.

Hoo waits for dinner

The most often asked kitchen questions:

  • Is there anything to eat?
  • What’s to eat?
  • What can I eat?
  • Are we eating soon?
  • When are we eating?
  • Can I eat this?
  • Whose chinese is this? Can I have it? (Usually said with a mouth full of cold lo mein).
  • Why isn’t there ever anything to eat???

(Bart)

Bart eyes Hoo’s dinner of purple grapes, cubed cheese, banana slices and toast points with butter.

“Well, you have dinner I see.” He sneaks a few grapes off the plate.

“Bart, would you like a plate of grapes and cheese? You sound a little jealous.”

“When he eats the food looks so good.”

I open the fridge and take out the rice and meat sauce.

I make a plate for Bart and put it in the microwave.

Now Hoo sees that Bart has something interesting to eat and immediately loses interest in his dinner.

Bart says, “You want to trade buddy.”

He switches his plate with the baby and proceeds to eat Hoo’s dinner while Hoo digs his hands in the rice and sauce.

“You know” I say, “I would have made you your own.”

“I know.”
