Mrs. Hillbilly Mom is just plumb tuckered out this evening. All that standing around for a.m. and p.m. parking lot duty, plus whipping up a delicious pot of chili that includes everything but the kitchen sink, plus frying hamburgers for the boy young 'uns will do that to you.
Did you know that a sixteen-year-old boy will eat a bowl of chili and a hamburger and a peanut butter sandwich? In ten minutes or less? Because he has to regain his strength that ebbed when the cafeteria ran out of hamburgers and had to scramble to find some cardboard pizza for the third lunch shift.
I've never seen the cafeteria line as long as it is this year. I don't know if more kids qualified for free lunch, or if kids are not getting enough to eat at home and rely on school food, or if there are fewer anorexics and manorexics in the population. At least everyone gets a free breakfast this year. Even if they aren't allowed to have syrup with their sausage/pankcake dogs. Some kind of regulation about too much sugar. Clamp down, big government! Don't you know that kids bring soda from home to wash it down? Because they don't like what we sell in the machines, that being diet sodas and Gatorades. And one half-pint of milk does not keep them adequately hydrated.
