I got this email today from Noah and Sawyer Scout leader (and incidentally, Rich DOES make his own Vanilla, weird hobby i know!)
I meant to tell you something funny that Noah said at our last den mtg....
When the boys started to shape their raw cookie dough they asked if they could eat some of it before it was cooked. I said, "Well, you're not really suppose to eat uncooked dough if it has raw eggs in it because you can get salmonella poisoning, this dough is probably ok because it's package, but do it at your own risk." Noah said, "Yeah, my dad makes his own home-made 'vanilla'." It took Loren and me a second to figure it out where vanilla came into the picture, then it came to us....salmonella/vanilla...I guess in a 9yr. old mind it sounds really close, right? :-) We couldn't stop laughing and giggling about it all the way home.
