Funny How This Works

A blogging friend shared this post today:

I called for a nacho night, awesome right? Except I ate almost all the cheese before it went on the corn chips… Why do I do these unforgivable things. 

I can certainly identify with her dilemma. Nachos sans cheese are just chips. I imagine that  when the ingredients met up in her stomach they probably recognized their respective soul mates and did a happy dance.

But her tale reminded me of one from my very early childhood. I commented:

When I was very little my mom made up a mixture of peanut butter and Karo syrup to put on toast. But while she was toasting the bread I devoured the mixture. She got so tickled because I thought the peanut butter and syrup was my breakfast. I remember that vividly and I was only three or four at the time. Your post brought that back to me. Thanks!

I can still picture the confusion on Mother’s face when she brought the toast to the table and found that the peanut butter and syrup bowl was empty–probably licked clean. It was my first taste of that lovely concoction and it was bowl licking good.

Then she began to laugh. And it was a wonderful laugh. We mixed up more of the good stuff and enjoyed it on our toast. And then I watched Captain Kangaroo.

This is why we share our lives through our blogs. The exciting and mundane, the shocking and the bland can provide meaningful connections. You never know when your post is going to trigger a lost memory.

Heres a link to my friend’s site. Check her out!

Peace, people.

  1. I used to have oatmeal for breakfast. My brother liked sugar on his and I hated it. I remember my mother once giving me sugar by mistake and I had to eat… had to eat…

    Sorry, I don’t think I can continue this anecdote. It’s all too upsetting.

  2. Now for some reason I didn’t get notified of the tag and somehow missed your post!! Oh the joys of technology. Regardless, thank you for the mention here 🙂 and I’m glad my nacho night brought warm memories for you, it’s strange what a corn chip can make you remember. I cherish those moments the most, when random memories come flooding in from something that so far from being related to the topic. Again, thank you for sharing 🙂
