I saw today’s WordPress blog prompt, lollipop, and immediately began singing in my head.
Lollipop, lollipop, oh lolly, lolly…
That song makes me think of my dad and summer nights driving around town with the oldies channel blasting on the speakers.
We used to play this game in the car. The idea was that we each took turns choosing our direction at an intersection. My sister and I always seemed to have a destination in mind and would try to direct the car that way. It is funny thinking back to how Mom or Dad would take over a round when we’d start to get too far from home.
I’ve tried playing the game with my son, but he doesn’t quite get it yet. I look forward to the day he does. I promise, at least one time, I’ll go all the way he wants to go.
