"Tastes Like Blue"
Behold: the 1st lollipop. EVER! Yes, folks, I deprived my son of pure, unadulterated sugar on a stick until he was 2 years and 8 months old. They offered one every single time we went to the bank, and one day I just finally said "Sure, why not?" But I dangled that thing in front of him aaaaaaaaall day long. "If you eat all your lunch, maybe you can have your lollipop." "If you take a good nap, maybe you can have your lollipop." "If you use the potty," well, you get the idea. So finally, after dinner:
He licked, and smiled. He licked, and giggled. He licked until every last drop of yummy sugary sweetness was gone.
And when we asked what it tastes like, he said "It tastes like blue!"
