Mom: "Time for dinner!"
Kid: "What's that?"
Kid: "No, what's that?" (points at strange new food)
Mom: "Avocado, it's native to Mexico."
Kid: "The water is bad in Mexico." (silently decides the food must be bad too)
Kid: "And what are those?"
Mom: "Peppers and grape tomatoes"
Silence as the kid stares at the salad.
Mom: "If you eat all your salad you can have whatever else you want for dinner."
More silence. Finally the kid reluctantly eats, leaving the avocado.
Mom: "See, it's not that bad."
Kid: "I only ate the lettuce."
Mom: "Uh, yeah, that was spinach."
Kid: (mouth drops on the table) "You did that on purpose!"
Mom: (while doing the happy dance) "Mwah, ha, ha, ha! Now who's the smart one?"
