Last night, on the ride home from the mall:
S: Mom, McDonald's must want to make a lot of money. They have signs everywhere.
M: That's definitely true, honey.
S: Why do people eat there if it's so unhealthy for your body?
M: I'm not sure, honey. I think because they like the taste and because it doesn't cost a lot of money.
S: But what makes it so unhealthy? Because it's fried, right?
M: Yes, and other things.
S: Like what?
M: Well, you know the chicken nuggets? They only have a very tiny bit of actual chicken in them. The rest is beaks and feet and bones that are all ground up into a paste, which they mix with chemicals and a thing that is sort of like the gas we put in our cars, to make the nugget. They do this because it's cheaper than using mostly chicken.
S: Wait a minute, wait a minute, can you pause for a minute?
M: Sure, why?
S: Because I have to scream for a little bit.
