Food as a Disciplinary Tool: Redux

Sitting in a McDonald’s chomping down fries and a cheeseburger (Emily went with the chicken sandwich, and Erin had the McNuggets) from the Mini-Meals Menu (Just $2.99 each, with a small drink to boot! What a deal!) I was suddenly confronted with a daughter who was more interested in what was behind our booth than what was on her tray.

“Erin, sit down please.”

“O-kay!” and she sat. Briefly.

“Erin, sit down please.”

“O-kay!”, and she sat. Briefly.

“Erin, sit down or I’m going to take your fries away.”

The mild death stare from Emily…well…you didn’t want to be in my Oh-So-Self-Righteously-Blogging chair.

Goddammit.
