Thoughts on life from Pat Oaks
February is right around the corner! Hard to believe. Seems like I say every month, "where has the month gone." Now I am saying it about January! John boy asked me for a story about February, and this is what I told him.
When I was a little girl and living on Bernhurst Dr. in Fountain City, there was a knock on the door on Valentines Day. I went to the door and a boy down the street was standing there with a heart shaped box of chocolates! I was so excited. I had never gotten one of those before!
After thanking him profusely, I brought it inside and opened it, ready to dig in!. When I started to reach in, I realized that all of the good pieces were gone. I don't know if it is still that way, but back then there were what we called good pieces and bad pieces. Tommy's grandmother, Nanny, used to pinch each one to see which was good and which was bad. Of course to her, none of them were bad. She just didn't want anyone else eating any!
In the month coming up, I hope you all get a heart shaped box of chocolates. And I hope that all of them are in there. And I especially hope that none of them have been pinched!
