My husband recently bought some sunflower seeds which are currently sitting in our car. Seeing these seeds brought back a flood of memories. Some of them I think are worth documenting. It all started when my parents used to take me to sporting events when I was little. It all sounds harmless enough, but it wasn't.
After a while I would get bored...
I would go under the bleachers and play with whatever I could find, I did however, have favorites. I would find the leftover piles of sunflower seed shells and meticulously go through each one to see if I could find any overlooked, or partial seeds. If I was so lucky to find such a treasure, I would eat it. I always found that the wet ones were harder to handle, I much preferred the already dried variety.
It gets even better though. My other germs of choice were popcorn kernels. There were always an abundance of those. I would find every kernel in the gym and suck whatever flavor off of them I could before discarding them for the next lucky kid to find. I've always wondered why I was sick as a child??
