Cheeseburger Cheating

In this photo on the right Lizzie has just stuffed a fourth of a cheeseburger in Jake's mouth as he was talking... read the dialog below for the entire scoop:

As we were walking into Old Chicago:
Mom: "Lizzie, please order something other than a cheeseburger because you only ever eat one bite of that thing."

Lizzie: "OK, Mom"

Waitress arrives, taking orders, gets to Lizzie.
Lizzie: "Cheeseburger and french fries, please."
Waitress: "OK, sweetie, and if you eat the whole thing I will bring you ice cream on the house!"
Snickers from all at the table over 6 years old.
Lizzie: "OK!"

20 Minutes later: As waitress sees hamburger cut in 1/2 and only 1/4th eaten. "Tell you what, sweetie, if you finish that bite (points to the 1/4th of burger) I will get your ice cream!"
Within 2 seconds of the waitress turning around, Jake leans forward to say something, "Moooo" The word was never finished...quick as lightening Lizzie had grasp the 1/4 piece and shoved the entire thing in Jake's mouth!!!!!!! Needless to say we were all astounded! Mostly Jake, as Sean and I were practically falling out of our seats laughing.

Guess what? Lizzie ate every drop of that ice cream. And her brother still loves her anyway...
