Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting

11 Jun



I hadn’t seen one of these since junior high school … when we were chasing the paletero down the street for an ice cream cone.

We got it at the fair when my son won this as a consolation prize for not tossing the frogs onto the lily pads. It made me think of all the times I sat on the steps of my building, hung out with friends, talked about how awesome our lives were going to be when we moved on up.

My life is not awesome, but the Ring Pops still rocked. It reminded me of the times when I actually sat down and enjoyed the moments without having to remind myself to be present. Ring Pops … who knew.

    What are Ring Pops, Guat?

      This was the best invention for kids like me who didn’t like eating the paper of the lollipop stick when you got to the end of the candy. Some genius invented a lollipop (without the stick) and put it on a plastic ring … so that you could show off your lollipop bling and eat it at the same time. 🙂
