The Middle First

When we'd carefully twist and then pull the perfectly round chocolate wafers apart to reveal their soft centers.

When we'd slowly savor that sweet vanilla cream one deliberate lick at a time.

When double dipping in milk...was not only allowed..but expected. How else were we to eat the leftover chocolate parts?

When milk and oreo cookies were a part of afterschool homecoming...warmly welcoming on a cold winter day. When they were among the favorite summer sweet  treats.

When it was cool to eat the middle of that oreo first..and save the chocolate cookie outside for last.

Ya...that's what I thought. Of course you remember. How could you ever forget?!?!?
