It's fund raising season for the public schools again. The wee man is in grade four now. Every year since JK he has been selling something, usually stuff no one wants or needs. The momma doesn't let her babies go door to door...she falls back on family and friends. Mom dials, the kids rattle off their spiel. At least now that they are older you can actually understand what they are saying. Other years it has been chocolate covered almonds or chocolate bars, wrapping paper and bows, ornaments....dust collectors and garage sale fillers for the most part. This year they are selling (are you ready for this? drum roll please) VEGETABLES. Yes, you heard correctly. VEGETABLES. Finally, something we can use and that we would have been purchasing anyway. I hope this becomes a trend.
