Blue moon demands

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 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:

You don’t need to post it to me, just remember this list for my next visit home!

    1. You never promised us vitamins “once in a blue moon”. You denied those to us full-stop because you insisted we got all of our vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients in the healthy food you fed us. (But Flintstone Vitamins tasted like candy, so that would have been preferred, as a child.)
