This morning he turned to me and said, "I had a dream last night."
"oh yeah? What was the dream about?"
"We had licorice. We weren't eating it, we just took it out of the package."
"Do you remember where we were in the dream with the licorice?"
"Yeah! We were at home!"
So, this is really weird. Because we never have licorice. Not really ever. And not ever at our house. But I was planning on getting some today, which is weird.
When I was growing up, our family would always go out to the (then) public pool at Gowen Field to go swimming. We would pack our own lunches in order to pinch every penny. But mom would always "splurge" on one thing. We always brought licorice. You know, that big bag of licorice with red and black together? Heather would eat all the black, and the rest of us would fight over the red. My favorite was the chunk that had the 5 short pieces stuck together. We would lay out on our towels, hands wet with the over-chlorinated water, and feast on that licorice. It is burned in my brain. I even remember the one time we brought a bag of chocolate licorice. Blasphemy, I know, but I love chocolate licorice.
Today, we're going over to a friends house to swim. Last night I was thinking that on our way over, we should stop at the grocery store and pick up some licorice and keep the tradition going. But I'm pretty sure I never vocalized that thought. And then to have Judah dream about licorice kind of freaks me out!
Anyway, there's my freaky thought for the day.
Now, for some long awaited pictures!
