Mourning the aluminum foiled Ding-Dong of my lost youth
Last week I was taking the kids to Wonderland Park and decided to buy a snack for us at 3 Bears. I don't buy pre-made snacking stuff very often because it's so expensive. I buy fresh fruit for a little extra, but the kids all really wanted Ding-Dongs. It had been over 10 years since I bought them. You may imagine my utter shock to find them wrapped in plastic instead of aluminum foil! I was p-ssed!
Anyway, we went to the park and ate them and the kids played, but I bought some more en route home and contemplated a poem about the loss of truth without aluminum foil of the Ding Dongs of my youth. I took a picture and my kids kept popping up! This one is of Mudd running in asking me, "Are you going to eat that?"
