The Apple Cider That Will Cure The World
I am convinced that the world would be a much better place if everyone just had a sip of Mormor’s warm apple cider.
I was quite the child growing up. There were only very little
kids nearby, so most of my days were spent with two little
old ladies–my grandmother and great aunt. We lived next to
a large forest with rivers, tracks, foxes, deers, and I’m sure a
troll. I loved going on picnics in that forest.
My grandmother would pack an old-fashioned basket
with a blanket, a pillow (I would not sit on the ground), real
china (would not eat or drink out of plastic), and homemade
sandwiches and cakes. What a child I was! They should have
put me out to the wolves.
One fall afternoon I really wanted to go on a picnic, but both
ladies were taking a nap. So I packed the basket myself with
a pillow, a plate, a cup, some cookies, and a soda. I forgot the
bottle opener, but I was at least smart enough to put a note
on the fridge.
