At dinner tonight, which, like most of our dinners, includes multi-colored varieties of vegetables, Jael to whom I loving refer as the "Food Bigot" made what she thought was a radical observation. We were talking about carrots being good for vision, particularly night vision. Please remember that we are a military family. Dear Jael, age 15, interjected that since night vision goggles were invented, carrots were NOT necessary, were NO LONGER NECESSARY, for good night vision. She then pronounced that "Night goggles are the ANTI-VEGETABLE" and said that she would buy night vision goggles and leave the veggies to anyone else who really wanted them. To her way of thinking at the moment, it was a comparison of sun dials and digital watches. There is NEVER a dull moment around here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
