U: "I don't want to eat garbage"

As the 38,647th showing of Pixar's excellent Cars was loading up in the DVD player, I thought I might divert Ulysses's attention to Ratatouille, another Pixar instant classic, and a movie I've been dying to see.

U was enjoying the preview of Ratatouille that played on the Cars disc, so I dug out the other movie and presented it.

"Look, Ulysses! Do you want to watch the movie about the rat who becomes a chef?"

He looked at the disc case in my hand.

"No!" he exclaimed. "I don't want to eat garbage."


  1. Oh, there was a great piece on This American Life this weekend which included a story about a man who decided to feed his family by dumpster diving. U's statement reminded me of it. I guess U will never be a Freegan!

  2. Oboy! I love TAL. Can't wait to hear this one.
