Fabulous Finishes


the trouble with cauliflower

by Jane Sutton

Even though Mortimer tells his friend Sadie that whenever he eats cauliflower he has bad luck the next day, he eats some anyway and of course, has bad luck the next day.  Sadie, trying to rid Mortimer of his superstition, tricks him into eating cauliflower again. This time, however, he has a great day the next day. After she explains to him that the only reason he had a bad day was because he expected to have one, Mortimer believes her and orders pizza with cauliflower on it. But, in the end when Sadie suggests they go get some lemonade, Mortimer tells her he can’t because every time he drinks lemonade it starts to rain. Great loop!
