It wasn’t long ago when I wrote a story for one of my newscasts about food prices seeing their highest spike since the 1970s. The cost of wholesale food had climbed nearly 4 percent in a single month.
That was back in March. Now a few months later, prices are even worse, and that is exactly why I present to you, my youngest son’s incredible skill at adaptation. It’s survival of the fittest at its best.
Little Aiden is a genius.
He not only managed to hide a goldfish in a place where no one else would find it, he also succeeded in remembering it was there! Or maybe it was sheer luck that he found it more than a week after depositing it. Either way, he found that goldfish during dire times and ate it. [And now that I think of it, this must have been at least the 2nd goldfish he found in that seat belt buckle hole.]
And no, I did not stop him from eating the stale cracker[s]. Afterall, grocery prices are through the roof. And if he’s found a way to sustain himself, by all means, go right ahead.
