My mom went through a phase where she was hiding gummy worms in my brother’s stuff. (Gummy worms were pretty new in our parts.) My other brother and I only twigged because she hid one in his cheesesteak and that didn’t work out so well. She put Mexican hat gummies in my hat but I think that was a secondary gesture to keep me from feeling left out.
Why gummy worms? Why my brother? There may be a back story but it’s just as likely a whim.
Of course, I’ve told Zoe these stories (partly to explain some of my own quirks).
This is what I found today:
That is an eye in the lychee box.
Why do we have an eye to put in the lychee box? It was a back up Halloween thing she made for me in case the unicorn horn didn’t work out.
When confronted with the eye of the lychee storm, she said: “I didn’t want it to go to waste!”
