What Would Jesus Chew?
I've been so bogged down with life and my current problems, I had lost track of the fact that Easter is this weekend. I remember checking the calendar back in February or March to note the date, but it wasn't until someone reminded me today, that I found out it was actually coming up this weekend. I had wanted to dye some eggs and hide them so the city rats could have an Easter egg hunt. Let's be realistic. Aren't they going to find them before the kiddies? And no PEEPS™! Washington Cube: Kickin' Wit Da Peeps.
One Easter while I still worked on the Hill (and Congress was out of session,) a co-worker and I dyed a lot of eggs. We spray painted about three of them gold, and if you found the gold egg, you would win a special prize: a chocolate bunny or egg, cd's...we had all sorts of prizes. Late one night, we stayed behind in the office and started hiding them. We did keep count, not wanting a nasty surprise days later from something that had been overlooked. It was a real morale booster for the staff, and it was funny to see these normally Alpha driven people running around the office, trying to be the one who found the most eggs. I remember one gold egg totally eluded everyone. I had hid it inside the toilet roll tube in the Congressman's private bathroom. Yes folks, your tax dollars at work. I know, I know, I know.
So here I am. It's Easter, and I am not prepared. Tonight, I went into a local drugstore, and I found the perfect gift for my jaded urban set:
(I love the faux wood grain effect. In milk and white chocolate!)
This got me to wondering if maybe it's time for the Vatican to have another overhaul, maybe rethink the communion wafer. "Take this and eat. This is my body... in six delicious flavors."
Are we expecting rain?
