Monday Nostalgia

I have a secret to share...I don't want to but I feel I must. First, let me say that I am a disciplined eater and eat quite healthy...most of the time. However, I have a weakness! It's cotton candy. Funny thing is, I don't even like really sweet desserts and I prefer dark chocolate to milk chocolate. I always cut the sugar in anything I bake, so how is it I love cotton candy so much?

Tasting something like.........HEAVEN.
Maybe because it brings back memories of my dad taking me to the carnival each year and getting to have one cotton candy to devour. I grew up in a small town and it was a rare treat to come in contact with the soft, cloud-like spun sugar. I am embarrassed to express how much I love this stuff, but I do. I truly do LOVE it.

I am thankful the store I frequent does not have this stuff all the time. I have so overdosed on sugar today, and it doesn't feel good, doubt, I would do it all over again.

and for some more nostalgia...

"Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe."

— Neil Gaiman
