Orange You Glad You Drink It?

By Beth Beutler
1     "Drink all your juice, please," Mom said.
 
2     "Yes, Mom," Sally said with a sigh. She drained the last of her orange juice out of the 8-ounce tumbler. Then, grabbing her oatmeal bowl, she gathered up the glass and her spoon and placed them by the sink.
 
3     "I'll take care of those," Mom said. "Just go get finished preparing for school."
 
4     While Sally gathered her homework and sweater, she thought about her morning routine. Every day, it was the same thing. She always had oatmeal and a glass of orange juice. She hadn't really thought about it before, but she wondered why she didn't have some other type of drink in the morning.
 
5     Sally swung by the breakfast bar and grabbed her lunch bag. Her mom picked up her purse and keys, saying, "Let's get going!"
 
6     After piling into the mini-van, Mom began to back out of the driveway. After she turned onto the street, Sally decided to ask her a question.
 
7     "Mom, why do I have to have orange juice every day?"
 
8     Sally's mom focused on the road and thought a moment.
 
9     "Well, I guess it has just become a habit," she answered. "But orange juice is very good for you so it's a good one! Why do you ask?"
