we're feeding boo
lest you think we're on a forced hunger strike while bean's away, here's evidence that boo is being fed. today he has his usual fare, pesto, provolone, lettuce and veggie bacon on ciabatta; cucumbers; very vanilla silk; and a wheat-free chocolate chip cookie i made as an experiment. they came out pretty good (made with oat flour), but a little too weird tasting to sell in the store, i decree.
if i could post photos of what bean's been eating, i'm guessing there would be many cans (of beans? creamed corn?), trail mix, water, and...?
yesterday boo took a mental health day from school, following a day of slight trauma caused by the live dissection of a lobster in science class. although the lobster professional assured them that lobsters don't feel pain (quite possibly true, but also a very convenient stance for the lobstering industry), boo was troubled by seeing its innards (including its beating heart) and blood (clear). i hope the experience inspires his classmates to pursue careers in marine science rather than inspiring them to kill live animals because their insides look cool.
