Bet You Won't

 James is infamous for coming up with contests and today's was exceptionally amusing.


At dinner, he told Elijah that he would give him $10 if he would eat a giant red raw onion slice.


Who would turn that down?


So Elijah agreed and took his first bite.  It was bad.  (I think he threw up in his mouth a little.) Real bad, but he muscled through. VICTORY!

And the prize was worth it  - straight into his savings for an air soft gun.

Just found your blog and look forward to reading more.

This sounds like something that would happen at my house ... and the names are even the same.

My husband, James, would totally ask my Elijah to eat a raw onion. Just tonight, big brother Gregg almost got Elijah to eat a bite of a jalapeno pepper.

Look forward to reading more. I, too, am the "old woman that lives in a shoe with so many children ..."
