We had an annual math lesson in my kindergarten class where we would made a class graph recording the students’ favorite ice cream flavor. It never failed, the same flavor won five years in a row by a landslide.
As you might expect, it’s bright blue. Blue moon came out on top for five straight years because it is fun, not because it’s the best tasting flavor for five-year-olds. I can’t help but notice that it’s not on the list of top ten flavors.
When I was little we would occasionally make our way into Baskin-Robbins for a treat. Ya know, 31 flavors, so there were lots to choose from. I don’t believe blue moon was a choice, but pink bubblegum was (and still is). It is bubblegum flavored with candy coated pieces of bubblegum (like Chicklets). This chocoholic from birth would always order pink bubblegum. Why? It was fun!
Kids are perpetually seeking fun.
What about you? Are you still looking for fun? Even if you say you are, does your day-to-day life serve as proof? If so, I bet people (kids especially) are naturally drawn to you.
Fun doesn’t just happen…you have to work at it. What are you going to do to bring some fun into your day today?
Are you enjoying a vanilla cone or blue moon?
