When a child has a lollipop in her mouth, sticky fingers and fuzzy sticks that have been dropped in the grass come to mind. When an adult has a lollipop, the small mysterious lump in the mouth and excess saliva could be the sugary deterrent to having a cigarette. I once knew a CEO who always provided Tootsie pops at meetings; worked for me, I was so busy chewing the center that I never put my foot in mouth.
Frank Baum’s book has no Lollipop League, but the Wizard of Oz film made them famous.
Ruth Heller’s children’s book – Many Luscious Lollipops – is about adjectives not sugary treats – but with words and pictures worth drooling over.
Today is National Lollipop Day. Most lollipops are fat free, so you might want to indulge – just skip the suckers with bugs.
L-O-double L-I-P-O-P spells lollipop, it’s the only kind of candy, the man who made it was a dandy;
L-O-double L-I-P-O-P you see – it’s a lick on a stick guaranteed to make you sick – lollipop for me!
That’s a song I used to sing in preschool – thanks for the memories.
Never heard that one.
AWESOME! Never knew there was a national lollipop day 😮 How about “Lady Lollipop” by Dick King-Smith another great book (the pig is named lollipop -does that count? 🙂 ).
Thanks for your note. The day might have been invented by the candy companies.
