  17. Looks good, but no chicken for me. My high schools last week told me they felt bad for me so i had to explain it is a matter of personal choice, personal likes and personal dislikes, so if I do not like to eat chicken, why feel sorry for me...I didn;t give up something that I enjoy. They understood that and I think that shows some level of maturity from a good of 9th grade guys. They never thought of it that way.

  18. Looks good. I really need to start spending some time in the Asian grocery stores. Some many great items I'm missing out on.
