Butter flavored lip gloss?

Let me start by saying that I am a margarine girl... as for Campbell- well, you be the judge.

Opal came for a visit last weekend and one of our many adventures landed us at Fresh Choice for lunch. Opal is a great eater! She will try anything. Veggies, pasta, meat, she even ate an enchilada!! Campbell is not such an adventurous eater or even taster. She knows what she likes and sticks to it. Luckily, some of her items of choice are green.

So as we were finishing up lunch, I was getting geared up to devour a gingerbread muffin- which, by the way, is the real reason I like to eat at Fresh Choice... Anyway, Campbell starts pointing at a tub of margarine. I handed it to her and she worked on opening it for a couple of minutes before she got frustrated. I gave in and pulled the foil top off and hand it back.
She sticks her tiny little finger in and then tastes it. Instantly, the tongue comes out and the margarine tub is discarded onto the floor among the rest of the disaster we've created.

Almost immediately she starts pointing at another tub on the table. Whatever. I am trying to eat my muffin here... so I give her another tub. This time, I get the foil started on the corner and hand it to her to work on.

(Mmmmm, my muffin was so delicious. Sprinkled with just the right amount of powdered sugar... Wait! Too much silence....)

I glance over and she is sticking her finger in the BUTTER (not margarine) tub and applying it to her lips like lip gloss- complete with a pucker and smack. Ah, there was an occasional lick of the lips but, then another application was required. Maybe she is on to something?!

What a kid!

Peace out from Cedar Park!

I will take a butter flavor kiss from her ANYTIME. I say let her have it and whatever else she wants. :-)

Butter rules! Margarine sucks. The girl knows her stuff.
