Dinner conversation last night. My daughter had a mouthful of egg roll that she couldn't seem to chew and swallow.
Me: "Hey kids, eat those egg rolls. You know the best way for us to conserve is to eat leftovers. Let's not be wasteful."
8 year old Son (serious as a heart attack): "Yeah JoJo, you better eat it. Food prices are going up since they raised the minimum wage."
