Sam must have lived through a depression in an earlier life. Or at least in some kind of setting where food rationing was a part of daily living.
Sam occasionally breaks out when he eats peas. Normally just when he has copious amounts of peas--which is always a threat because the kid loves his peas (what kind of a cruel universe would make a kid allergic to a VEGETABLE that he actually LIKES?). Not wanting to deprive him of his favorite legume, we occasionally allow him to eat a handful of peas.
Such was the case the other evening at dinner. A few peas. He loved them.
The next morning Sam woke up with a few hives on his face. I was confused. Normally, if Sam breaks out it's within an hour of eating. Chalking it up to a fluke I proceeded to bring him to the breakfast table, where he reached inside his mouth, and pulled out a lone, mushy, green pea that he had been saving in the side of his cheek. All. Night. Long.
Poor kid. He hoards his food in case the next meal is scarce.
