I know... I dropped out of the A to Z Challenge at unable. Then my last post happened. One of the things I listed about myself was that I tended to not finish projects. I had done it again! The A to Z Challenge had become another of my unfinished projects. Even though there are some holes in my project, I am going to finish what I started with a memory about Zero Candy Bars
One of my favorite things to do as a little girl was to go swimming at Memorial Park. On the hottest summer afternoons, we'd don our swimsuits, hop in the car, and head for the pool, where we would meet up with friends. Many of today's pools are parks, very unlike the simple ones of a shallow and deep end with a rope designation where one began and the other ended. I was a shallow end type of gal, unless I was trying to impress a boy. Then I'd hang onto the side kicking my legs in the deep end - just hanging out. Crazily, since I didn't know how to swim, I once tried to jump off the high dive. Embarrassingly, I chickened out and had to crawl back off the board to the safety of the concrete ground. What does this have to do with Zero Candy Bars?
Obviously, I wasn't a swimmer. You'd more likely find me sunning on the beach towel or sitting on the concession stand benches eating a Zero candy bar. They weren't just any Zero candy bars. They were frozen. Oh the goodness, sitting in the shade, biting into a thawing chocolate outside, creamy in the middle, candy bar. So delicious. Try it sometime.
Congratulations to everyone who successfully participated in the A to Z Challenge. I thoroughly enjoyed reading everyone's posts. It was a good experience!
