Crunch Time

Daily Prompt:  Lollipop

Do you remember the Tootsie Roll Pop commercials that used to ask,  “How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll PoP? ”  It always made me crazy because I can’t just lick a lollipop.  No matter how hard I try, I start out licking and wind up just biting right through the hard candy.

As far as I am concerned, they should be called quick pops, not lollipops.  The name lollipop brings to my mind slowly savoring something I love, not eating it as fast as I can like when you have to swallow medicine.

I guess I should have realized that it was a warning of how things would be in my future. I am definitely not known for my patience.  I can actually feel myself start to shake inside sometimes when I have to wait.  Even at my ripe old age of 65, I still am a bit impatient.  And for the record, I was at the bank the other day and grabbed a lollipop off of the desk.  Before I knew what was happening I was crunching on the hard candy once again.  Somethings never change.  🙂
