I’m happily munching away on my Spaghetti Hoops with meatballs when Helen sits down next to me.
“You hungry?” I ask. “There’s another can of this in the pantry.”
“But mine are always soggy,” she says sadly.
“Soggy?” I wasn’t sure I understood. Soggy how? How can knock off Spaghettios be soggy? It’s unheard of.
“Yeah. When I add water to them and microwave them they get soggy.”
I’ve been wondering why I keep finding huge amounts of discarded Spaghetti Hoops in my sink.
“Maybe you should stop adding water to them,” I suggest, but inside I’m worried for my child. Smart kid, but little things in life seem to confuse her. Ready made foods for one.
Of course, I can’t really fault her too much. I have to call Glenda for instructions whenever I make rice.
