Discerning Palate

To my son Tommy,

So it turns out that the speed bump we hit with your food intake last night was due to the macaroni being cooked in water with olive oil.  Somehow you could tell right away and were not having any part of it.  Not sure if you have super human sense of smell, taste, or sight but you certainly knew.  We made a new batch in fresh water later that night and all was well.

This food intuition has struck before when we realized that some McDonalds in the PA area either use different oil or perhaps local grown potato for their fries.  When these alien fries were placed before you, you looked at us as if to say "no, no...I said McDonald's fries...but nice try" and no amount of convincing or cajoling would sway you.  Perhaps this means you will be a prime candidate for one of the dream jobs of the average joe... Brew Master!  But for now I just wish your palate would cut your parents some slack.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
