Each day at lunchtime, I cut one Granny Smith apple into 12 bite-sized pieces for the boys.

Not surprisingly, right about then is when the Apple Mob emerges.

Fergus (doing his best James Cagney impersonation):

You better give me another apple slice, see?

Fergus: I know you have another slice, you dirty rat.

Everyone else (in unison): Oh Fergus, give it up, would ya? ♥
