School sausage equals nasty stomach ulcers.

by LynnGlenn on April 29, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My school gives us three choices of meat for our biscuits for breakfast. You never know what you are gonna get though. Today was sausage. If you have ever had school sausage before you know that it's nasty. As well as the school ham. Personally, I think the chicken is the most decent meat that the school has to offer. Anyway, back to the school sausage. It even looks nasty! I would post a picture now, but I'm on a school computer. Don't worry though, I did take a picture!
