Funny Fridays: Yakky Yams

This week's Funny Friday moment is brought to you by one of our dear Canadian Living readers. I decided to introduce my girls to a new food item. Asian Yams made their appearance at our dinner table for the first time tonight. With puzzled looks on their faces, the girls looked at it and started up with a long line of questioning "What is it?" "Do I like it?" "Have I ever had it?" After a little persuasion from both their dad and I, they agreed to try it. Towards the end of the meal, I glance over and notice the yam had been pushed off to the sides of their plates. I asked my 11 year old what she thought of it. She replied that it had no taste, was a bit mushy and that she didn't much care for it. I then turned to my 8 year old and asked her the same question. She abruptly threw down her utensils, pushed back her chair and disgustingly said "I DON'T LIKE THE YAK!" We all burst out laughing. Do you have a funny moment to share? I'd love to include it here. Please e-mail me at letters@canadianliving.com so we can spend our Friday's LOLing at your kids funny antics.
