Those Less Fortunate

Another golden moment of conversation with Julius as we're chopping things up for dinner:

Julius: What are you making?

Me: I'm not sure yet. I haven't figured it out.

Julius: Are you just chopping the vegetables?

Me: Yeah and then I'll go look and see what else we have to make. I'll let you know as soon as I know what we're having.

Julius: Are you chopping up worms to put in there?

Me: Yeah. Definitely.

Julius: People really do eat fried worms, you know. They do.

Me: Did you know that in some places people eat grubs and maggots?

Julius: Yeah, in Africa. They are really poor in Africa and don't have a lot of stuff. People should send them money or maybe food. They are so poor in Africa they don't even have toys or food or television or candy and cookies or Bakugan or cartoons or clothes or water or even Coke. Africans are the poorest people in America!
