Sugar Daddy

We were running errands. The kids and I were in my truck and it was a rare moment of quiet. My little girl loudly proclaimed, “I need a sugar daddy.”


“You know, that candy with a stick.”

Right, of course.

In case you don’t know, a Sugar Daddy is a sticky chunk of caramel on a stick. This conversation reminded me of an incident that I had as a child. I was in church, chewing on a Sugar Daddy. I’m not sure why that was a good idea but it was the 80s. They were a crazy and dangerous time. I’m sure there was a theory about a super sticky candy keeping me quiet during the service. I was pretty little. I was enjoying my sticky treat and then, when everybody stood up to sing the first song, I put my Sugar Daddy down on the pew. Then we all sat back down.
