Let it be neither mine nor thine, but divide it.
By this point, I’m sure we’ve all heard of the Swedish Lunchlady who made food that was Just Too Good and was told to tone it down. If you haven’t, well, check out the article here. If you’re not even particularly inclined to do even that, here’s the money excerpt:
Annika Eriksson, a lunch lady at school in Falun, was told that her cooking is just too good.
Pupils at the school have become accustomed to feasting on newly baked bread and an assortment of 15 vegetables at lunchtime, but now the good times are over.
The municipality has ordered Eriksson to bring it down a notch since other schools do not receive the same calibre of food – and that is “unfair”.
Now, when I read the *NEXT* line in the article, I thought that maybe there were some shenanigans being hidden by the reporter… here, check this out:
Moreover, the food on offer at the school doesn’t comply with the directives of a local healthy diet scheme which was initiated in 2011, according to the municipality.
Oh, well then. Surely she’s violating some of the diet schemes or something and people are focusing on how the food tastes good instead of how it meets nutritional requirements or something like that… right? Well, then I read *THIS* part of the article:
From now on, the school’s vegetable buffet will be halved in size and Eriksson’s handmade loafs will be replaced with store-bought bread.
I’ve never found Solomon to be a particularly interesting character in 1st Kings 3. The true mother of the living baby didn’t strike me as particularly interesting either. I’m always fascinated by the mother of the dead child, though… and how she keeps popping up when you least expect her.
