Facinating factoids of the seven year old mind…

by Janie Jones

Did you know that muffins have crust which must be painstakingly removed for the first time ever -in 6 years of being old enough to eat muffins- on January 9, 2012?

Seriously.  The top, sides, and bottom (constituting about 75% of the muffin) were picked off the muffin the spud had for breakfast this morning.  When I asked why, which came out something like:

Good merciful heavens child, what’s with all that muffin stuff piled up on your plate?!?

The calm and straight forward answer I got was:

“Well, muffins have crusts.”

“They do?!?”

“Yeah.  The crusts sort of scratch my throat kind of a little bit.”

Mmn.  You don’t say.

  1. That’s one of those things that confuse scientists. Usually, the different behavior is the result of direct observation of a peer that practices the same behavior in the school lunchroom. There’s no logic, although the herd behavior is irresistable to some children. There is no solution, except starvation.
