Liam is 9 years old, and he cares deeply about food.
|Liam Waldman's 3rd grade essay anout ink.|
I first heard about Liam from my son. They share a 3rd grade classroom, and stories began to trickle home about bizarre restaurant smackdowns happening between the two of them. It was a classic tale of childish one-upmanship -- but instead of boasting about who has the best video games or baseball card collection, the two of them were tussling over dining. "Have you been to Animal?" Liam would ask.
"Yes," my kid replied, "have you been to Milo & Olive?"
"I've been to Fig & Olive. How about ink?"
It turns out, ink is Liam's favorite restaurant, so much so that he wrote an all-important school assignment about his visit there. I got my hands on his essay, and got permission from Liam and his parents to reprint it here. We've kept Liam's spelling and punctuation intact because it's awesome. Enjoy.More »
