Yesterday, unexpectedly, we found ourselves out and about around dinnertime. So, on the spur of the moment, the three of us decided to treat ourselves to a family dinner out.
Marcus decided to order calamari as a starter. Alex gleefully dove into the dish, helping him eat. Suddenly she stopped.
"Dad? What is calamari, anyway?"
Marcus grinned. "It's squid."
Alex stopped chewing. "Squid?" she asked through a mouthful of food, a stricken look on her face.
She stared at him for a second. Thinking. Weighing.
Then she smiled.
"I had NO IDEA squid was SO GOOD!" she said chewing again with abandon.
Clearly my family will not be joining me in vegetarianism anytime soon.
