Today is National Lollipop Day

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.

  2. AWESOME! Never knew there was a national lollipop day :o How about “Lady Lollipop” by Dick King-Smith another great book (the pig is named lollipop -does that count? :) ).
