Given some crayons, you expect a kid to draw something, usually a memory or a dream. But kids, being as surprising as they can be, can always amaze you by remembering something like this even though they can’t even remember if they brushed their teeth before bed…

My daughter was playing with tub crayons tonight in the bath... I think she watches too much daytime television.  "I have a strucksherd settkenebt abd U beed cash now. Call JG Wentsworth. 877-cash now. 877-cash now. 877-cash now. 877-cash now. Call now."

But in defense of the aforementioned bacon-lover, even Metallica, themselves, have decreed, “BACON VERY IMPORTANT THAT BACON BE AVAILABLE DURING EVERY MEAL.”
