Okay, before we Flashback and reminisce about the good ole days, I just have to apologize in advance that this will be a short post. I know some of you are singing the Hallelujah Chorus right now (and, honestly? I sure wish I could hear it--because the idea of one person trying to sing all of those parts...like I do sometimes...kind of tickles me. I remember my church choir director--Shout out to Mr. Lewis!--trying his hardest to get us to sing, "Shu-hu-ly" instead of our own Southern version "Shir-her-ley." Most of you probably don't even have a clue what I'm talking about right now, do you?)
Oh, YEAH, I was talking about how this was going to be a SHORT post. Back on track, lady, the train's a' coming.
Anyway, this is going to be a short post because I was at Silver Dollar City all afternoon and evening. *(Begin feeling sympathy here)* And it rained and rained on us, and then it was so humid and so incredibly hot, that I wasn't sure if I was pouring sweat, or if I was just drenched from the rainstorm. You know how you can get so hot and so drenched, that at a certain point, you totally stop caring what you look like? Well, I reached that point 30 minutes after arriving.
And you know what I say? Thank heavens for ponytails and bobby pins. Two miraculous inventions that have changed my life forever.
I'm not really complaining about today--because we really did have a GREAT time. Especially while we were sipping on our Arctic Lemon drinks. I'm just telling you about my long afternoon to say this will be a short post. But, maybe I am already too late for that?
Friday Flashback!!! Yesterday's post got me all nostalgic about my childhood. Just tonight I was visiting with my sister-in-law, and she asked me what were some of my favorite snack foods growing up. She mentioned Tang and the Little Debbie Star Crunch. (Well, shoot! Now I've got to go find a piece of chocolate to eat!)
My family? We were a big Easy Cheese family. Easy Cheese + Wheat Thins = True Love 4Ever!!! There were also quite a few Twigs in my past. Do they still make Twigs? If you were a teenage boy in my family (hi, Big Brother!!), you went through thousands of bags of Doritoes and Hot Pace Picante Sauce. My mother used to worry that my brother was going to burn a hole in his stomach from eating so much hot food. But, I am pleased to announce that as of last reporting, there were no holes in my brother's stomach.
But, enough about ME! I want to hear from YOU! What were some of YOUR favorite snack foods growing up?
