That’s no pixie dust!

Posted in: Leslie's Blog, Author: leslie (February 20, 2011)

dsc_0271My child brought home Valentine candy the other day.  One of the treats was a blast from the past: Lick-a-Stick.  I instantly thought of the summers spent at the neighboring town’s pool.  It was a double treat: swimming AND a candy concessions stand!

I don’t remember the stick part of the packet being the tastiest.  After all, it’s just meant to transport the colored sugary good stuff to your mouth.  But my kid decided to eat that part first.  He then proceeded to eat the pixie-stick-type candy with his fingers.

You may think, “That must have been some good green candy“, or you may think, “He looks like he’s transforming into the Incredible Hulk“.  But I swear to you – the original candy was blue!  Crazy.

So here’ wishing you two things this week:

1. Some unexpected color in your life, and

2. A “blast-from-the-past” memory that makes you smile.

Blessings this week to you and yours!

    The candy necklaces or “taffy sticks” were my favorite!
