Cesar Chavez

Griffin is studying historical American figures and today's topic of discussion is Cesar Chavez. If you don't know him, he fasted for 35 days in order to alert the public to the dangers of pesticides. So, tonight's conversation after studying is as follows:

M: Mom, what's for dinner tonight?
G: Yes, what ARE we having tonight?
Me: We're fasting, so we can truly see what it feels like to be Cesar Chavez!
M & G: Mommmmmmmmmmmmm, seriously?? Mommmm, that's not funny!
Me: Well, it really would be the best way to learn about how it really felt to be Cesar!
G: No, i think we're fine just to read about him.
