While teaching nutrition in health today I displayed a picture of vegetables. A girl raised her hand and asked what the big green thing was. “BROCOLLI,” I replied.
She then went to say, “Hmm, is that good, I have never had it?”
Two more students said that they had never tried it either.
My heart hurt. She had gone 16 years without knowing what broccoli is.
Not roasted in olive oil, not steamed over noodles, not dipped in ranch….nothing.
I am disappointed in this upcoming generation.
I have decided to honor broccoli after school today by eating 1/4 lb. I think its feelings were hurt earlier.

-I have never tried a Twinkie in my 24 years on earth. Mock me if you would like but I think they look like a sponge and I refuse to eat something that has a shelf life of 200 years (ding-dongs don’t count).
