Bet you didn't know that one!
Friday night dinner was fish fillets and macaroni & cheese, as we try and follow the no-meat-on-Fridays protocol during Lent. As I put the food on the table, Eric started his series of questions:
Eric: What are we having?
Mom: Fish, and macaroni and cheese
Eric: Fish? Why we having fish?
Mom: Because it's Friday.
Eric: Friday? Why we having fish on Friday?
Mom: Because it's Friday during Lent and that's what we do
Mom: Because that's what Jesus ate.
Eric: And macaroni and cheese?
And I answered yes, thinking that if Jesus had the option, he too would be eating macaroni and cheese on Fridays during Lent.
