Short, Sweet & Hot ~ that time when you “give in” to a grandson’s wish to try an Atomic FireBall!
Short & Sweet.
And a bit HOT, too.
My grandson Ben, 7 years old and very, very persuasive, had been asking me for 2 days to buy him one of these…
I told him how it sounds really awesome.
I told him it’s a spicy, cinnamon-y kind of HOT.
I told him how I tried them many times during my childhood.
I told him of how many times I spit the things right out and that the challenge of finishing one lasted ’til I was, oh… maybe 10 or so.
He was relentless.
He was mischievously elated…
He may have even said, “Oh, sweet“…
Which quickly changed to Short & Hot (minus the Sweet!)…
I’ll spare you the photos of the rest.
Some of THE SWEETEST, SHORTEST and most MEMORABLE moments of this guy’s and my life.
I’m sure happy I caved!
Now he’s bugging me to buy another one when he’s 10.
