My kids are crazy. If the 20 minute long tantrum that began for no fathomable reason and ends for no fathomable reason, with a rapid shift from crying to hysterical giggling isn’t proof enough, then the following story should prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt.

A lot of people think of fruit salad as just being fruit cut up in a bowl. To be honest, that can be pretty darn good. But when we think of vegetable salads we tend to assume there’s some kind of dressing on it. Why shouldn’t a fruit salad have the same treatment?
