Robert got hold of an onion today from my shopping bag. The following conversation took place:
Mom : Robert is the onion nice, do you like onion ?
What are you doing with the onion ?
Robert: Take the onion off the peal, take it off, take it off
Mom: And then what are you gonna do with it.
Robert (chomps up on the onion and starts chewing for an answer)
The onion is missing a little chunk and sometime after his first few bites his enthusiasm waned. I am amazed that he put up with the sharp taste of raw onion. He still smelled of onion as he went to bed. I wonder what his teacher will think if he still reeks of it tomorrow morning.
Incidentally, this is not the first time Robert displays a liking for the strong biting taste of onion. Last year, during our holiday in Germany he happily crunched a green onion, perhaps it gave him a anesthetizing sensation on his gum as he was teething.
