|The school cafeteria is under construction without any warning. The construction will take at least two weeks!!!! The school has decided to provide a fast food lunch everyday!!!! The lunch will consist of a daily cheeseburger, medium fries, and a medium soft drink. Sounds great, huh? The school nutritionist is a little worried, as well as the principal.
