More Fun the Second Time
Recently, my youngest had a birthday and he received many gifts. Among them were a couple of things that were a blast from our childhood. There were the Tranformers that were way harder to transform than anyone remembers. Then there was this:
I had one of these when I was a kid. I remember it being something I was really excited about and then not using it much because it was quite a lot of work for a sno-cone. There were several people at the party, the husband included, who never had one, but always longed for one.
So, I think it is fair to say that the birthday boy was not the only one who enjoyed this gift.
Fortunately for me, it was more fun this time because I was not the one turning the crank! We all agreed that maple syrup was/is the best flavor. The birthday boy loved it.
If you are so inclined, you can watch this youtube video of the original commercial for the Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine.
Sometimes, the gifts for the kids are really for the adults, don’t you think?
