Whipped Cream in a Can 29 October 2014

reddiwipWhipped cream in a can…what could be better? Just shake and squirt right into your open mouth or the open mouth across from you! No mess and no clean up. And, it comes in different flavors: caramel, chocolate and regular.

I’d get home, open the fridge and I just couldn’t help myself. On the bottom shelf in the door were those cans, yes cans and I figured one little squirt, after a long day, couldn’t hurt, or two or three. I closed my eyes so I’d be surprised by whatever flavor my hand chose.

When Alex, my youngest, would hear the sound of the on a spoonescaping cream, he’d wander over and open his mouth like a baby bird. I’d fill the gaping hole with that creamy whip and he’d swallow and grin.

Why? Because it made me smile. It made us both smile.
