Marathon Mom.

This afternoon Quinn asked me, "Mom, what kind of candy bar did you like when you were younger that's not around anymore?"  To which I replied, "Well, pretty much everything that I liked when I was younger is still around.  I'm not that old, you know."  This was my attempt to re-educate Quinn on how being 40 something is the new 30 something.  Right?  (Even though 30 something is probably still  considered old to a 10 year old.)

"I mean when you were a kid.  What did you like when you were a kid?"  he insisted.

Pause (on my end).

"Then the Marathon bar.  It had braided soft caramel covered in milk chocolate and was delightful." 

Ah,  I guess no matter how I play it, old is old to my son, and that I am.  Even the wrapper has a .15 cent price stamped on it.  When was the last time you've ever seen a candy bar for 15 cents, if ever?  Just thinking about the Marathon bar makes my mouth water.  I know it wouldn't have crossed my mind had Quinn not come up with the wicked question.

Now I want one.
