As the only vegetarian in the family, the mother of the house often gets tired of defending her food choices to other family members. She didn't realize how often the subject is actually discussed until one day, when she picked up her six-year-old, Jordan, from school. His class had made chickens using potatoes and paper feathers.
Jordan proudly presented his little project, announcing excitedly, "Mom, we finally have the kind of meat even you can eat!"
The teacher asked her student to write on the chalkboard the number 55. The student asked, "How do I do that?"
Teacher replied, "Write down the number 5, and beside it add another 5."
The student wrote one 5 and stopped. The teacher inquired, "What's wrong?"
"I don't know which side to write the other 5?"
