THE GIRL WHO HATED EVERYTHING A Children's Story Copyright 2002 Jennifer Green There was once a little girl who hated everything she was offered to eat. She hated turkey, she complained it was too dry. She hated corn, she said it was too chewy, and the pieces stuck between her teeth. She hated potatoes, they were too mushy. She hated peas, they rolled right off her fork. She hated carrots, she couldn't even get them on her fork. She hated beef, hated hot dogs, hated chicken and hated fish. She hated all the major food groups, and even hated some of the minor ones! She hated pizza, she said it was too cold. She hated soup, that was always too hot. She hated pretzels, they were too hard, and hated pudding, that was too soft. She hated potato chips, she said they were too loud when she bit down on them. But she also hated ice cream, that was too cold and hurt her teeth! Well, the little girl got skinnier and skinner. She hardly ate anything! The days went by and finally, in desperation, one day her mom told her she couldn't eat anything. Not the steaming piles of scrambled eggs and delicious, crispy bacon for breakfast. Not the turkey sandwiches, piled high with tomatoes and cheese for lunch. Not the chicken and mashed potatoes her mother made for dinner. Her mom wouldn't let her eat any of it. She got skinnier and skinnier, and the very next day it was Thanksgiving! The next morning the little girl got up and watched her mom and family get ready for Thanksgiving dinner. By that afternoon the table was all set. There was a beautiful turkey, all golden brown and ready to eat. There were bowls and bowls of vegetables, potatoes and carrots and peas and broccoli. There were three kinds of salads, and rolls and butter and jelly, and homemade, delicious smelling apple pies and pumpkin pies, with vanilla ice cream to put on top. But her mother wouldn't let her have one bite. The little girl had to go sit in her room until all the rest of the family was finished. Finally they all ate their huge Thanksgiving dinner, and all the dishes were finally washed up and everything was put away, and everyone went to sleep, all full of delicious food and wonderful memories. When the house was all still and quiet, and everybody was in bed, the little girl crept slowly down the staircase. She quietly took the leftover turkey out of its wrapping, and piled a big plate high with the leftover potatoes, turkey, and vegetables. She took three heaping scoops of two different salads, and three or four rolls and butter. She sat down and hungrily ate every single bite. Then she helped herself to the leftover pumpkin pie, since the apple pie was long gone. She savored every bite, and filled herself to the brim. Then she quietly cleaned everything up, put everything away, went to bed, and never, ever complained about her food again. Tweet
