Once again I can’t get Plinky to come up, but I know what todays prompt is via Facebook; If you were a flavor, what would you be? So I guess we’re revisiting our childhoods here, trying to answer a sneaky question that makes us think of words to describe ourselves and what we’re like.
I’m suffering from introspection overload, and I’m no child on normal days, so why not ask some actual children for their answers to this? I’ve got a few of them handy as it happens, since today is a snow day and there are four grandchildren milling about willing to answer grandma’s weird questions.
Kale hardly needed to give it any thought at all. His answer was immediately “Annoying Orange.” Anyone who knows Kale will appreciate the very subtle humor in that.
Corey decided (with a little help from his brother) on “Kung Fu Coconut”, because he is evil and funny and a bit nutty. Then he had second thoughts about it and made ‘annoying apple’ his final answer.
Omayja chose “Minty Ice Cream” because she is smooth and cool and sweet and delicious and everybody loves her. All true. You can ask her grandma.
Madison thought she might be more like “hot and spicy pizza”, so hot that she could make people cry. Everybody knows Maddy has this side to her personality. Then she grinned and told me she’d be a honey dip donut instead. We would all like the donut girl to surface more often. Especially on snow days when we’re all cooped up inside trying to be quiet so mom can rest and get better after her surgery.
We’ve made it all the way from 7 a.m. to noon! Yay me and my flavorful crew!
