Our drama begins...
Penelope: Look everyone! I made a delicious, wholesome home-made meal this evening!
Natty: I hate it!
Penelope: You don't even know what it is yet.
Natty: I still hate it.
Hubby: What is that?
Penelope: Home-made chicken stew with dumplings. It's really good.
Hubby: Oh great (said with sarcasm). My favorite (also said with sarcasm). *pulls soy sauce, hot sauce, Caesar's salad dressing, Worcestershire sauce, and other assorted bottles out of the pantry*
Cristian: This looks like white-people-food. Why did you make us white-people-food?
Penelope: Because I'm white? What are you talking about?
Cristian: There are potatoes in there. White people eat potatoes.
Natty: That looks like brains. Or snot.
Penelope: It's not brains. It's a dumpling. It's delicious! Try some.
Natty: *eats one molecule* *makes dramatic gagging noises* I hate it!
Hubby: *gets out can of tuna fish, dumps it on top of chicken stew*
Penelope: Would anyone like a beer? *pours herself a beer*
Kids: May we please be excused?
Penelope: *finishes beer* Yes. I refuse to cook anymore meals for you ingrates! What do you want?
Penelope: Fine. Tomorrow I will make brown-people-food. Steak and rice. Happy?
Hubby and children cheer! Weenie dog waits patiently for some food to fall on the ground.
Off to purchase steak,
