This week’s musing –courtesy of http://collettaskitchensink.blogspot.com — asks…
Do you snack while you read? If so, what is your favorite reading snack?
I am not a big snacker.
Heavens knows, I eat enough at meal time. I sure don't need snacks too.
Of course, I say this having just finished a snack of some pepper jack cheese and Keebler Flatbread Crisps, the Sea Salt and Olive Oil variety.
But would I do that while reading?
No, not really.
There are a lot of issues.
First of all, you would have to decide which hand to use to snack with and which to use to hold the book. But then, how will you turn the pages? So now you need a place to rest the book too. At first, I though you should snack with the right hand and hold the book/turn pages with the left. But on further thought, being as I am right handed and you turn pages from right to left, it seemed better to use the right hand for the book and left for the snack. Sort of a wet hand/dry hand sort of thing, like when you are breading some nice chicken cutlets or some huge, butterflied shrimp.
But still, I think there would be a good chance of getting a stain on the book.
And that would be very, very bad.
You could eat some more tidy snack. Like M&M, which were invented to be neat.
Is that true, or one of those urban myths?
Let's ask Wikipedia...
"Forrest Mars, the founder of the Mars Company, invented the idea for the candy in the 1930s during the Spanish Civil War when he saw soldiers eating chocolate pellets with a hard shell of tempered chocolate surrounding the inside, preventing the candies from melting. Mars received a patent for his own process on March 3, 1941. Production began in 1941 in a factory located at 285 Badger Avenue in Clinton Hill, Newark, NJ."So, it is true. Good to know.
Hey, I am from Newark, NJ but I never knew that!
Car Jacking Capital of the US and the Home of the M&M.
Gosh, do you think I might be over thinking this whole snack thing?
I am apt to do that.
But now I believe I may know why I don't snack while reading.
It is just all too complicated!
OK, on a totally different track, today is my brother's, the Bro's, birthday!
Ssssshh...Don't tell anyone, but he is 60 years old today.
The real question is how I can have a brother who is that old?
Granted, I am his younger sister, but still, this seems to make me rather old as well.
The Bro's name is Mickey.
He was named after Mickey Mouse you know.
OK, that is a lie.
Actually, he was named after my father.
But Mickey Mouse would be cool.
OK, all together now..
Happy Birthday to You..
Happy Birthday to You..Happy Birthday Dear Mickey..
Happy Birthday to Youuuuuu!!
