Detectivery

I remind my son

throw the trash

okay

he pulls the lid

fusses with the bag

gathers the edges

he stops

he looks at the trash

seeds

stringy

pulpy

seeds

he looks at the oven

its on

350 degrees

he goes to the oven

he opens it

UGGGHHHH!!!

spaghetti squash

he closes the oven

his fears confirmed
