Lunch: for some of us, it’s the most exciting part of our day; for others, it can be a disappointment. The Talon decided to unravel those brown paper bags and pop open those customized lunch pales to get a look at what keeps our classmates going throughout the day.
“I try to make sure that there’s a banana in my lunch every day because I really like bananas. There’s this quote by Rascal Flatts, ‘Life is a highway, I want to ride it all night long’ and I think it really captures my sentiments about bananas”. — Joseph Nazareno (’17)
“Everyday I make the same thing. A ham and barbecue sandwich; just bread, ham, and barbecue sauce. Usually I try to bring something for break like some crackers or something and then bring something to eat with it at lunch like some chips. Then I like to bring some fruit snacks to clear my breath afterwards. I try to bring good smelling foods.” — Jake Mellor (’17)
“I usually pick the items that are ‘Grab ‘n Go’. For example, a mandarin orange; no necessary package, a chewy granola bar, a cheese stick, apple sauce, and a fruit nut mix. And sometimes I’ll eat Jake’s sandwich if we eat together. Grab ‘n Go. I rest my case.” — Ryann Thomison (’17)
“I usually buy my lunch every Friday or when I forget to make a salad like today. My dad used to make my sandwiches and they were really big, but I’ve recently moved on to salads that I make the night before. I have like a little Tupperware with little forks and knifes packed with a dressing container. I just bring that to school and clean it out that night, ready to use for the next day. I like the taste of salad. It’s satisfying.” — Sean Baker (’17)
“My everyday lunch is usually a PB&J, pretzels — actually a lot of pretzels –, carrots, peanut butter, celery, and an apple. The main dish is the pretzels. I normally make my own lunch, but sometimes my mom has to make it for me. She’s got the magic touch! Whenever she makes it, it’s just so much better. I honestly would prefer it if my mom made my lunch!” — Pat Barnes (’17)
