Kids write the darndest things…

When children do intelligent things it gives me hope for humanity… here are two things perhaps worthy of their own individual posts, combined under this fairly weak unifying statement.

So this kid sends a funny letter to President Reagan asking for natural disaster relief to help fund a room clean up.

Here’s the response, via 22 Words.

Then. Many years later. In the present. A Scottish girl raised the ire of, and then won a backflip from, her local council after they banned her from posting photos of her school lunches on a blog she created for the purpose… she was even raising money for charity. I for one, welcome their bowing to public pressure…

Her blog is called NeverSeconds. I think you’ll see why nobody is left wanting more…

That’s from this post, and the review reads:

“Lunch was really nice today and it helped cheer me up. Macaroni Cheese at school is so creamy and it’s nice to have it with the crunchy radishes and peppers. You don’t have to have mash with the macaroni but they offered me some and I took it as I always have mash if it’s offered. We don’t get jelly often, maybe about twice in every 4 weeks, and I like to put it on my spoon and suck it through my teeth. It’s so slippy it doesn’t really make a noise so I don’t upset my friends!

Food-o-meter- 10/10
Mouthfuls- 37
Courses- main/dessert
Health Rating- 5/10”

I like that she eats jelly exactly the way I do.
