Cotton Candy Dreams

I am sitting at my daughter’s high school for Solo Contests and peddling cotton candy. We spent last night spinning floss sugar into yummy goodness.

Beware of flying sugar! Nothing beats a head full of sugar cobwebs.

Now we are selling them for two bucks a bag with proceeds going to the arts and music. What a great way to spend the day.

One perk of cotton candy, for teens anyway, is the colored tongue effect. It’s a great hook. That dye is amazingly potent, I think they use tattoo ink. Maybe not. Red dye number 5

We got grape, strawberry, and berry blue. We even have cherry but it is blood red and scary. So we hid those. Cherry ones are for special people.

Cotton candy is a fun treat. I do think cotton candy is related to dreams. Who doesn’t take a bite of spookie fruitie or cherry berry and is transported back to a sweet memory from a childhood carnival experience.

So grab a bag and sink your teeth into the sugar god … And feel young. I’m here all day!

What color do you prefer you teeth?

  1. Blood red and scary, of course! C’mon, you couldn’t tease me with that and not expect me to beg for it! 🙂
    I hope the weekend treated you well, Erik. Have a great week!

    • I’m help to help! The kids were scared off the red, because they were too self conscious to walk around with bright red teeth and tongue 🙂
