reminiscing

so,
i know you want to know my favorite childhood snack!

and yes,
i have managed to pass this along to my children (even barron).
i know,
don't be jealous, or get too excited over my "special" favorite childhood treat!


come on,
come on,
try it for yourself.
i know you will love a "pickle on a fork"!
do it right,
you can't just eat it straight from the jar-
it must be firmly stuck to the end of a fork.

oh, and by the way,
i really am not a pickle fan these days...
but offer me one anchored to a fork
and i can bet-
i won't turn you down.

funny what sticks with you from your growing up years.

i wonder who ever started the "pickle on a fork" tradition?
or maybe, just maybe, my very on mom did!?

I've never met a pickle I didn't like!! And I love to eat it off a fork!

My son, who is 8, is a pickle fanatic! He did not get it from me!
