Kai drinks soy milk, but I can’t. I tried putting it in eggs and was in pain.

Joe can’t do a lot of diet sodas and neither can I. I can’t do most regular ones.

Joe’s allergies are worse than mine, at least the effects of them. A bag of those spicy chili lime cheetos put him in the hospital with stroke-like symptoms.

Additionally, Kai has texture issues and is often bothered by “mixed foods”.

Now… would you like to invite us over for dinner?
