Voices from the bottomless pit

“What do we want to have for lunch?”
– Mama, just returned with the girls from piano lessons

“I dunno… I just had breakfast.”
– Daddy, who got a late start to the day

“Around here on Saturday, it’s ‘if you’re hungry, eat.'”
– Daddy again, in response to Mama’s look of exasperation

“Well, guess I’m gonna eat all day!”
– Amanda, speaking the truth as only a child can
