Thursday Open Forum – December 23, 2010
Good morning. I am pondering if the song “Twelve Days of Christmas” includes Christmas Day. Is today the day I get ten lords a leaping or eleven pipers piping to add to the collection of true love gifts?
Also visualizing how good a honey bun would be with this cup of coffee. Everyday in high school I would stop in the cafeteria, buy a honey bun from the vending machine, and zap it in the microwave. Everyday. Sometimes I had a second one. These gooey buns were much bigger than what is sold today and had a thicker layer of white frosting that melted beautifully and stuck to the cellophane (a word I don’t think the kids even know) and required the fingers to be licked clean. What a shame my kids can’t have that morning top-off of sweetness when they get to school. Shoot, there are not even microwaves.
I did not do coffee back then. But, ahh, I do make my sons a cup of coffee with milk and sugar every school day morning, which they call cappuccino. (Read years ago math scores are higher for those who drank coffee beforehand.) Wonder what the fines of the future will be for force feeding minors “caffeinated” (which by the way is a word not included in spellcheck) joe?
I drink mine black. Blessings.
