Remember when you were little and the best part about going to the grocery store with your parents, was getting a surprise from the bubblegum machine after checkout.
Well, that is, if you were good.
I was always good when I was little. I was a quiet, little angel with a mop of brown curly hair. I never gave my parents any trouble. It wasn't until I reached the age of twenty-something that I became a handful.
I have migrated back to being that good girl. I have made peace with her.
When I recently found this grouping of machine ball treat heaven, it brought me right back to that time when I was little...standing there in the grocery store with my shiny coin, patiently deciding which round sphere I wanted.
Did I want something sweet? Sour? Gum? A small trinket like a ring or a sticker? The decisions were often nerve wracking?
Do children get the same enthusiasm over gum ball machines or is it something of the past? The ability to choose a small prize with just one coin...
This is Home Girl and I hope today is like these fun dispensers...colorful and sweet. We get out what we put into it, huh? Deuces.
