On more than one occasion, I have conversations with JT whereby I urge him to incorporate more fruits and vegetables in the list of food that he will consent to eat. He treats this as the advice of a mad woman. The other day, I was yet again preaching the virtue of veggies we had the following conversation.
Mama: Veggies are good for you and they taste good. How about you try one?
JT: I'll eat a potato chip. That's made of potatoes.
Mama: Well (hemming and hawing to escape the logic conundrum)....potato chips don't really count as a vegetable.
Mama: Because there's not much potato in them and they are fried.
JT: But they are still made of potatoes. That's a vegetable. I want a second opinion.
Clearly, my expertise is suspect.
