While 10 days of vacationing with relatives can do nothing good for your figure- it does wonders for memories: both recalling old ones and creating new. While home, my father placed a treat for my sister, my husband and I under our pillows. I had forgotten the instant joy that rushes to my heart when I see a little bit of candy peeking out from under my pillow. Sigh. My dad hid these for us:
I ate one tonight and more childhood memories were recalled: like the feeling of eating paper . . . I checked each dot to make sure I was not just eating paper, and yet still felt like I was eating a disproportionate amount of paper. I remembered that I always eat the strips from pink to blue. I realized I had forgotten that my sister is a pro at eating sugar candies- especially candy cigarettes, orange Tic Tacs and candy buttons. (I love you Katie- I miss you more than you know.) I realized that saliva, paper and dye do not make for a pretty after photo for a blog. And I remembered that the three green ones between blue and yellow are my favorite. Hmm, I wonder why . . . .
