Sometimes after dinner is done, we linger. We discuss very important things. Tonight, we did that. Me with my wine and them with their dessert. Driving had come up. I told them the story of how my mom taught me to drive and then tried to teach me to park with their actual car between actual other cars on an actual street...and then my dad went damn near apoplectic. So then he went and fleshed out a parking spot of the exact dimensions in the MVA handbook at the very school girl child is about to graduate from. Then he made me park like...a thousand times. (I passed my test with flying colors on the very first try).
Then I noticed boy child arranging his Jolly Rancher jelly beans by color as we talked. Little soldiers of bright sugar all lined up on his napkin. Which lead to the heavy conversation. Top secret stuff. Make sure you have your clearance. Ready? Here goes:
Gummi Bears (originals (Haribou))in order from least favorite to favorite.
*pineapple is only eaten if drunk or desperate
*who remembers green ones? They had lime ones when I was growing up. I am *still* pissed that the discontinued them!
Jolly Ranchers (original flavors)
*green apple is only eaten in the case of a zombie apocalypse or if I find myself shipwrecked.
Now note that green is my favorite if it's lime, shunned if it's green apple. Green apple anything is an abomination. Not quite as bad as banana flavored stuff. Or um...pineapple gummi bears!
So that's my scoop. How about you? Do you have a system? I promise to keep your secret if you share :)
