Ella is always eager to help others, and most times, I encourage this. But when she came home with an empty lunch card only two weeks after being at school – I had to ask what had happened to all of her meal funds that should have lasted months. She explained that she bought the entire class a snack on one day and several friends lunch on another day. I asked her how the lunch ladies allowed her to do this. She told me that they never say anything much about what the kids do at lunch. They are always busy talking to each other. Further proving how oblivious they are, she then told me that she once overheard one of them say that they - "wiped their butt, came back to serve food and realized her Lee Press-On Nail was gone." Is it odd that the first thing I thought was - who the hell wears Lee Press-Ons anymore? Ick all around!
