Drove back from Asheville today, so I’m a little late on getting challenge number nine up. Sort of feels like turning in a paper late. Hope you guys don’t dock points off my final grade…oh wait. I no longer get grades. Now I get reviews and Amazon ratings.
Am in the middle of eating a thin mint Girl Scout cookie.
Frozen. I always eat my thin mints frozen, probably because when I was growing up my parents would buy so many Girl Scout cookies that we had to freeze them or else they would go stale. At least that’s what my mom claimed. Probably she just didn’t want me to eat multiple boxes at once. But it got so that I became accustomed to the taste of a cold thin mint. It’s refreshing! Kind of like a Junior Mint. (Anyone remember that Seinfeld episode about the refreshing Jr. mints???)
My parents were in Asheville, too, just to come to my reading and support me. Really sweet. And thinking of familial support, our favorite YA author Lauren flew all the way to Atlanta for my launch event at the Margaret Mitchell house. (Boy were her arms tired. Ba dum bum.) For that same launch event my in-laws flew in all the way from New Jersey (insert repeat of tired arms joke here) and my poor husband has heard me read so many times that I SWEAR he now knows my book by memory.
This is all to say, it’s nice to have peeps.
As far as Peeps the Easter marshmallow treat goes, I’m not that into them. I think they are cute and kitschy, but I experience no craving when I think of them. And thoughts of most foods can send me into a craving, most notably a BLT with summer tomatoes and homemade mayo.
(Excuse me while I wipe the drool off the keyboard.)
Which brings us to challenge number nine: What’s your thought on peeps and Peeps? Email me the name and a brief description of the person (or peeple) who is most in your corner. Also email me whether or not you actually enjoy eating Peeps.
You know the drill: Send your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org. And post your answer in the comment section too, if you’d be so kind.
I wonder if a Peep would work for a s’more? Probably not if your vegetarian.
