I don’t know if I’ve mentioned it before, but my parents were really mean when I was growing up. As in they were so mean that they denied us sugary cereals and junk food. And if we got a soda, we had to share a can. (See, I told you they were mean.) When we got special treats, or when we asked for special treats, we were told those things are allowed “once in a blue moon”.
Over time, it all morphed into a big joke where my sisters and I will make demands on our parents for all the treats we were promised on a blue moon. They’ve yet to deliver the blue moon goods on a blue moon, but I won’t complain too much since they are good at sending me blue moon type goodies even without the blue moon.
And as there is a blue moon today, I would be remiss if I didn’t at least make my Blue Moon Demands. So if you’re listening, Mum and Dad, I would like:
- Cap’n Crunch Berries
- Root beer
- Twinkies (or other Hostess yummies)
- Cheddar and Sour Cream Ruffles
You don’t need to post it to me, just remember this list for my next visit home!
