Now that Finn has made the exhilarating move from elementary school to the junior high, he comes home thrilled with the perks of his new school. He spends most of dinner taunting his brothers with the vast improvements in his living conditions while they listen, stunned that such scenes are actually possible and await them in just three years.
“Man, the lunchroom is beast,” he said while we were eating Bowties With Prosciutto last night. “When you go in there are these three cooler things like you see in a mini-mart and they’re filled with different drinks. One has water and the next one has juices, like apple juice and orange juice, and they’re in these awesome containers, not those tiny cartons like at the elementary school.”
“We have apple juice instead of orange juice this year,” Drew said. “But it’s frozen.”
“That figures,” Finn said. “Anyway, the third cooler is the best, and it has all this, like, Vitamin Water and other cool drinks in it.”
“Did you try one?” Bill asked.
“No way. I got a plain water in case the Vitamin Water is all sissy and stuff. But I think I’m going to try every single kind of drink they have until I settle on my beverage of choice.”
