COMING JULY 9, 2016!
Wrinkling her nose at the unsavory looking, pinkish gray, pulpy rectangle, Matilda glanced over at the cooking fire with longing. “Whatever they re fixing smells delicious “
“I don’t think we had better try their food I doubt their diet would agree with us”
Matilda took the trail food reluctantly, breaking off a piece and adding a little water. Biting in, she shuddered. “Strawberry Beef Supreme? Ugh! Who thinks of these things? “
Wil took his own package nibbling experimentally at the corner. “Marc and I developed theories over the years. First was that they simply do the combinations at random. Second was that they spend an inordinate amount of time thinking hard what would be the most disgusting combinations known to mankind. My favorite; a team of nutritionists gathered at a convention got ripping drunk played Scrabble with the food pyramid. Think Strawberry Beef Supreme is bad? I once got Mango Macaroni Surprise. The surprise was that it was completely inedible.”
Grinning, Wil ate his Strawberry Beef Supreme with great relish. It was filling and it wasn’t Mango Macaroni Surprise.
