Eating Like Their Dad

“I want the steak!” the little boy announced.

“Son, wouldn’t you prefer the fried chicken sticks with macaroni and cheese?” Mom suggested.

“No. I’m hungry for steak!” he insisted.

“Son, you can have steak another time. Like when you’re grandfather isn’t paying for the nine people at the table.” Dad whispered hoarsely.

“Grampa said we could have whatever we want, and I want steak!” the little boy loudly stated.

Grampa chuckled and said, “Let him have steak. It’s all right.”

25 years later, the little boy had a family of his own. Their grandparents came to visit and treated them all to a favorite restaurant.

#1 son loudly announced, “I’ll have the teriyaki hibachi steak, with a side order of steak.”


Tell us about a time you found out after the fact that you’d been mistaken and you had to eat a serving of humble pie.
