Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

So that's it. Kindergarten is over. And this is what I sent with Primo as his final lunch of the school year. It was fragile enough that I went ahead and walked it to his table. Buzz's torso is a carved granny smith apple. The buttons are multi-colored maraschino cherries. Red, green and blue. The blue cherries are raspberry-flavored. Effin' miracles, man. His face is a banana set in a black grape. His joints are also black grape and the straps on his chest and his features are grape skin. The starburst framing his head is pineapple, cantaloupe and strawberries. Blueberries suggest the cold blackness of space, and I think they help the cantaloupe, strawberry, apple and Hostess donette to pop. In case the picture isn't clear enough, the message says "to 1st and beyond." Hopefully he knows I meant first grade and not first base. We're going back to disneyworld and I don't want things to get awkward when he sees Buzz in person. Has it sunk in that I peeled a grape for my son?

Next up: leftovers.
