I had my neighbor's six-year-old grandson again yesterday and he surprised me by saying, "My doctor said I can eat all the candy I want."
Could this have anything to do, I wondered, with a large stash of Halloween candy?
"I can have candy for dinner, too," he said.
Hmm. Really? "And for breakfast and lunch?" I asked him.
"Yep. The doctor said it's good for me."
"And what about vegetables?"
"No vegetables! And no pork chops and chicken!"
"What about chicken nuggets?"
"Yes chicken nuggets. And ice cream."
All I want to know is--is this doctor taking new patients?
