Packed Lunch Swap

On today’s prompt the is the word bias.

‘You’re biased, Mum, admit it.’

‘I don’t know what you mean,’ Sally said, packing the school lunches, as she had done every day since her children went to school.

‘Yes you are, just look at what you’ve packed for our school lunches,’ Terri said, taking out the contents of her box. ‘Let’s see what we have here; a cheese sandwich, an apple, an orange, and orange juice.’

‘It’s healthy, and there are many that don’t have food.’

‘You’ve said, and let’s have a look at Tom’s food – A jam sandwich, a packet of crisps, an orange, and a chocolate bar and orange juice.’

‘He doesn’t like cheese, and it is better he is eating,’ Sally said.

‘I don’t like cheese either Mum, and just for once, can’t I have a jam sandwich?’

‘I can make you a jam sandwich if you like, but you’re still eating the fruit.’

Terri smiled, it wasn’t much of a win, but at least she didn’t have to swap her sandwich with her friend. Although, what could she have for her apple. She didn’t like the peel, and her friend, was always willing to swap for her packet of cheese and onion crisps.
