Isham is Josh and Amy Koons’ son from Athens, GA.  Dinner had been served and the table cleared for the desserts.  Among the delights were Great Aunt Sue’s famous cheesecake with a bowl of blueberry topping on the side.  Isham (3 years old) observed the display with interest.  Uncle Scott asked Isham what was on the table for dessert.

Isham promptly replied, “Blue soup.”

I have tried endlessly to write a verse that does justice to the phrase but nothing works thus far.   Some day I may just name a whole collection of perfectly logical observations made by children BLUE SOUP.  I  love it (and the cheesecake, too!)
