A week dedicated to all the sweet things found in a lunchbox…
Since this week has been all about lunchbox desserts and nostalgic lunch time remembering… I’ve been ruminating over all of my particularly memorable lunch time moments.
I’d say I have about as many embarrassing lunch time memories as I do good ones. Funny how making a fool out of your self seems to go hand-in-hand with all of that unsupervised free time I mentioned before.
It makes sense though. Being strapped down to a desk, only speaking when asked for a scripted answer from your textbook– there are only so many embarrassing things you can do to yourself (although still totally possible, trust me) while in class.
But during lunch time, you’re free from the tyrannical bonds of the classroom.
Meaning: you are totally at liberty to look as absolutely plumb stupid as you can. All on your own. No one with a fully developed brain or appropriate hormone levels will be around to stop you.
What’s your most embarrassing lunch time moment?
When I was a freshman in high school, we ate lunch on the floor. I don’t know why. Don’t ask. We just did. One day I wore a long skirt to school, and, as we did every day, my friends and I were sitting on the floor eating lunch. One of the boys started admiring my skirt– like genuinely, actually admiring some little detail on it…
Anyway. He picked up the hem of it, just like an inch or two, not even a big deal at all. And I, having seen waaaaaay too many self-esteem/how-boys-should-treat-you videos in PE/Heath class, assumed he was trying to see undermy skirt. So I slapped him.Really, reallyhard. Because, when I watched the videos, that’s what I always thought those girls should have done.He was shocked. All of my friends were shocked. My violent, indignant, and quite dramatic outburst created a seriously awkward silence across the quad.
I’m still cringing.
If there’s one treat that takes me back to packing my school lunches, it’s Chewy Granola Bars.
My mom’s pantry is still stocked with these.
S’mores was, of course, my favorite variety. Duh.And these are so quick to whip up! They’re no bake, so they’re ready to go in no time at all!Extra perk: they’ll be sure to alleviate any lunch time painful, embarrassing moments your kid has. So don’t forget to pack them up in the lunchboxes!
