Pasta Night

So. Tonight we'll be having pasta for dinner. How about you?

I'm thinking noodles (Levi loves noodles!), sauce, maybe some chicken and veggies? Broccoli most likely.

My dad met the guy who invented broccoli. Or maybe it was my grandpa. Someone, somewhere, knew the guy who invented broccoli. I tell people this all the time, even though it has been years since my dad mentioned it to me, and clearly the details are fuzzy.  But that's not the point. The point is, someone invented broccoli!

Wait. You guys, I just tried to look this up on the internet. I can find no evidence of someone inventing broccoli.

Regardless, let us continue with this story! Someone, Mr. Broccoli, perhaps, created broccoli. In the lab? Accidentally, on his farm? By the hybridization of brussel sprouts and cauliflower. Think about it. It could totally be true.

Dad, what kind of lies were you feeding me along with that broccoli?

Ha, ha! You will have to ask your Aunt Julie for the details about Mr. Broccoli. Clearly, anything parents tell their children in order to get them to eat vegetables, is a fib. :D
Arrgh! Posting my comment is not working right.
