takes me back

i drank one of these today. yes, i realize that i said in a previous post that i was giving up “cokes”. but i don’t consider this a coke. i needed a treat, a pick-me up, if you will. as soon as i took a sip, it immediately took me back to when i was younger (yes i can remember that far back, sometimes).  in an instant, i had a memory of grape soda and vanilla ice cream. i can remember eating this and i associate it with my mom. i don’t have many pleasant memories of her and this is one. it’s good to be reminded of those. so, grape soda, takes me back. what takes you back?

  1. hmmm…i had to think on this one.
    i think coke floats remind me of my childhood because my brother and i would try to make them, but would make a massive mess instead. we’d have to get our dad to do it for us.

  2. grapico reminds me of getting my hair cut at this one place in mobile, b/c i would always get one out of the machine there.

  3. strawberries always remind me of when i was little and would come in from swimming. i would be starving and would think i was so cool to have a ‘smorgasbord’ of every kind of food we had in the fridge. my mom never failed to have strawberries stocked up. i would get out the jar of sugar and dip the right in it and eat them. very good. and pretty sure that’s why i was hardly ever cavity-free.
