It's 8:40 already and I'm scrambling to make lunch for C. I've cut up the veggies, roasted them and have the rest of the fillings ready for his soft tacos. In the usual last-minute rush of the morning - C can't find his socks, D wants milk - I leave one of the tortillas in the pan for a little longer than I should have. It turns out crisp and flaky.
As I try to roll up the tortilla around the stuffing I show C what's happening. I tell him to be careful at lunch time so the insides don't all spill out. He says he has an idea. Why don't I wrap aluminum foil around the taco so it doesn't fall apart, he suggests, just like Darth Vader's suit kept his insides together.
I could do without the visual but I follow his suggestion.
Later in the afternoon, I find a clean lunch box with no evidence of the mess I had feared.
