As a child I fantasized about eating all the cake batter I wanted, drinking all the Coke I wanted, owning as many books as I could afford, among other things.
Is there anything that when you were a child you wanted so much you couldn’t wait to be a grown-up to get it?
I do eat the cake batter, even if it has raw eggs–especially if it does. Even though I remember how delicious a Coke in a glass bottle is, I can’t drink it, for the life of me! Too sweet! Too bubbly! But I could, if I wanted to. If I make myself drink a Coke, I can do it.
I have a compulsive book-buying disorder. Ask Jeff about it. I relish the sight of books, the smell of them, the feeling of pages on my fingers. Even the cheap mass market kind of pages. I love them all. (Today Smith’s was having a buy 2 get one free sale, FYI.)
But the one thing I wanted as a child was a pair of Reebok high top sneakers. And I got them today! Skinny jeans are in, so this must mean all things ninety are in too. Right?
Aren’t they lovely? My poor husband is horrified, but they’re the most wonderful pair of shoes I’ve ever owned.
