Gentle Readers, sometimes one must adapt to evolving circumstances. Such is the case with today’s blog, which was meant to be a review of my favorite local Chinese establishment. However, life intervened, and the season beckons, and Peeps must get one last bit of attention.
The Eldest declared her love for the glittery marshmallows I so loathe, and then decorated them. Fine, I’ll admit, that’s both clever and more appealing, though I’m no fan of jellybeans either.
The second reason I love Peeps right now, they provide a great cover story. This year, the Easter Bunny had to show up a day late, and he brought something the Youngest knew I was contributing. The mythology and magic was about to explode.
But then, the Easter Bunny brought Peeps for me. The Youngest, with her unassailable logic, said “Mom can’t be the Easter Bunny, she hates Peeps.” Thank you incandescent chicks.
