Give Peas a Chance

Green Lennon says "give peas a chance"

Apropos of nothing (as is her modus operandi), Kourey asked me “Mom, why do we pray to God to eat peas?”

Caught off-guard (as is my general response), I intelligently said, “What?”

“You know, when ‘we pray the blessings and we pray for peas’,” she sang.

We talked about blessings, and meal blessings; we talked about peace (“It’s when there is no strife or struggles””What’s strife?””Um…struggles””It’s when there is no struggles or struggles?””Yeah””Hmm”) and peas. And I will never hear that song again without “We pray for peas” echoing Laura Story’s lyrics.
