Kade almost threw up when I showed him the worms frying up in the sauce pan.
"Oh, wait... is this a trick? Are you playing an April Fools joke on me?"
"Kade, why would I do that? This is your lunch. Worms are good for you."
"Eww, no they're not!"
"Of course they are! Cows, fish, and chicken are good for us! So are worms!"
"I am NOT going to eat that. No way."
After that he started looking at me really funny. Kind of disgusted and appalled. He shook his head and went to sit on the couch and told me he wasn't hungry any more.
I don't blame him! Those worms were especially unappetizing. Especially after I added the ketchup! ;c)
It took me quite a while to convince him that I was, after all, playing an April Fools joke on him. For a bit, he thought that me telling him it was a joke, WAS the joke, and that those were actual worms I was trying to trick him into eating. I'm not that mean!
It wasn't until I showed him how I made them that he believed me. Then he thought it was the funniest thing in the world, and he happily ate his bloody worm sandwich, even asked for seconds on the worms!
(If you'd like to make some worms for someone special - and gullible - in your own life, here's how: slice up a few cheese-dogs, or plain hot-dogs, into about 6 thin slices. Fry in a tiny bit of oil, or boil. They'll curl up and look nice and wormy! Have fun!)
