I pack sensible school lunches. Here are some carrots, child — at least look at them before you throw them out. Here are some raisins. If you trade them for Cheez-Its, I will know. Here is a sandwich with the crusts removed, because we all know crusts violate the Lunch Crime Conventions of Vienna. Here is the flavored-water portion with lots of vitamin C, so you won’t get scurvy on the long bus rides. Here’s the bag with the top nearly crimped. I would iron it and seal it with staples but we’re rushed this morning. Have a great day.
