Tofu kid




There's a little Chinese restaurant near where Mr. Mordecai works, and we meet up there sometimes for lunch dates or dinner. The same people are always there when we come, and they know Red Chief. Why? Because he loves tofu.

I'm sure it is surprising to be refilling a family's water glasses and hear the three-year-old demand, "More tofu!" We used to just fish the tofu out of our hot and sour soup for him, but we don't have to anymore.

That's because the nice Chinese lady who can barely speak English always provides Red Chief with a generous saucerful of tofu every time we go there now.
