Sudoku is for Sailers?
A dad came in today with his 2 1/2 year old daughter. He seemed "normal"...for the first 10 seconds. After mumbling I don't even know what while filling out the food intake form in my office, he hands it to me and as serious as serious gets he says, "you really need to find something better to do with your time, like play sudoku." Sudoku? What was I thinking getting a college degree?! Let alone trying to help people! I could be sitting around playing sudoku all day! No words would come though, just a smile and a, "ahh ha." Then when he looked at the "goal" sheet, which was created to help people think of nutrition related goals for their children, he says to me, "Goal? We don't make goals. The only goal we have is to go sailing." Again, he was dead serious. Everything out of this mans mouth literally had my jaw on the ground, but the last thing I remember was telling him his daughter was underweight and his only response? "She doesn't need to gain any weight, because then I'll have to buy her a new life jacket!" You know...for that sailing goal. And In case you haven't caught on, he was serious.
