HI friends! Sorry this post is a lot later today, but hey its Saturday right? Yes, Cherries on Top was meant as a Photo Challenge for this week and I don’t think they meant Pinterest photos, BUT…the theme inspired me. So hope you don’t mind that I bent the rules a little.
This made me think of a memory from many years ago, I was 19 years old. As you can tell from reading my blog posts I love to laugh and I may have a history of playing a joke or 2 on people, or maybe more 🙂 I only had 1 problem, there were times when I would find someone that matched my wit especially well and trying to get 1 up on them was very hard! This was the one situation back when I was 19, I had been the victim more times than not with this one person and I decided that it was time to do something!
I found my opportunity. We were having a talent show, large group of people. Not a professional talent show, just something for fun. I had schemed and I had my yummy “supplies”. It was my turn and I walked up on stage with a chair and a bag holding my goodies. I announced that my dear friend would be helping to assist me. Of course he didn’t know that ahead of time, but he was a good sport and came up on stage and sat down in the chair. I proceeded to read a poem and made it come to life much to my friend’s surprise! I can’t quote the poem now, but it had to do with sundaes and it included all the toppings, as my friend’s head was the dish. I think you get the picture.The audience loved it!! And before you think I was too mean, believe me he deserved it! I knew he could handle it. He could take things as well as he dished them out!
My plan had worked and I topped it off with a Cherry!! All great things deserve a Cherry on Top. So even if you feel like instead of getting the Cherries you keep getting the pits, don’t give up!! Your day will come, when you can smile proudly!! You never know! You know what they say about chocolates right?
That chocolate with the WINNING CHERRY is waiting for you!! Go pick it! 🙂
