I would say that I, as a grown woman, could not remember the last time I had a lollipop, but that’s a lie.
Last summer, my camp gave out lollipops as one of the small prizes on our carnival day. Headquarters sent us a massive bag of Dum Dums, and not that many kids wanted the lollipops. So I took the bag home.
Dum Dums are so good. I know they’re terrible for you, but the flavors are awesome. Root beer. Pink lemonade. Cream soda. The super artificial watermelon flavor that tastes like childhood. Yum.
Today I could have gotten a bag of Dum Dums and worked through all of the flavors, but I resisted temptation.
I remembered that I had another superior brand of lollipop in the house for today.
I had a few left over from when one of my friends got engaged and we all wore Ring Pops to go with her new ring.
Also I forgot that this was much bigger than a Dum Dum, and it was too much sweet for me to handle, so I didn’t finish it. Shame on me.
Any other big kids out there, also enjoying Lollipop Day?
