There is a snack shop where we vacation each year that serves up some rather tasty treats, a snack shop at which I did not purchase one single, solitary item this year. But when Laura and I walked past it this week, I did experience a fond flashback from years past, remembering just how yummy was my favorite treat.
Me: “Wow, it sure is hot today. I’m kind of missing my annual Oreo milkshake right about now.”
Laura: “Why don’t you get one?”
Me: “Oreo shakes have a lot of sugar, and I don’t want to be eating sugar.”
Laura: “Mommy, when I grow up, if you’re still alive, I’m going to invent a sugar-free Oreo shake.”
Note to self: If you find yourself floating down a long tunnel toward a warm, white light, go back – there’s reason to live.
