Oh green and yellow popsicles...thank you from the bottom of my heart! May I never again pass you by in favor of orange and grape!!
Of course, you are asking why.
At the risk of giving away my advanced age - there is a certain unpleasant medical test that often happens after a certain unpleasant age. I had this unpleasant test yesterday afternoon. (I had to have it based on an abnormal screening result - but all is well - praise God!!). As it turns out, the test itself is no problem. Of course, with the help of great drugs, I slept through it. But...what they don't tell you...is how truly awful the day before the test is. First, a liquid diet starting the morning before which meant no solid food for almost two days...seriously!!?? Then don't even get me started on the true horror of the Gavilyte-C that you drink by the gallon the night before.
Two things got me through it. First - flavor-infused broth, specifically Swanson's Thai Ginger. It is so spicy that I felt satisfied. Second - and most importantly - green and yellow popsicles. That crunch of biting into a popsicle when you've only been able to drink everything else, is the ultimate in satisfaction and relief. Popsicles do not count as solid food, but
the test also requires that you don't anything red, purple, blue or orange. Thus...green and yellow popsicles to the rescue!!! (I used root beer popsicles too but I didn't think a dark brown popsicle would look quite right on this card!)
Oh green and yellow popsicles...you do
melt my heart!
These are really fun new popsicles from Reverse Confetti. Here's a close-up...
If you look closely at the green popsicle, it has a polka dot background that comes with the Let's Chill stamp set (along with the sentiment). I added stripes to the yellow popsicle using the So Stripey set.
I used the current Sweet Sunday Sketch.
And now I'm off to find myself a big breakfast!!
