Wow, that IS horrifying!
If you recall prison movies where one of the prisoners throws his tray of food on the floor and shouts that he and the other inmates won't eat this lousy slop anymore, that's what the food was like. Except us inmates had to eat the horrible chow or face the wrath of the nuns constantly monitoring our eating habits. "You eat that soup...don't be so sloppy...finish what's on your plate." I'd like to have picked up a lunch tray and thrown it on the wall, but the nuns would not have taken that defiance kindly. (smirk)
