One of my favorite snacks is peanut butter on celery. Each bite gives you a sweet drink of water to wash down the peanut butter. It’s much better than my previous favorite snack of eating peanut butter off my fingers.
I liked to make “peanut butter” in my mouth when I was little. I remember being really excited when I accidentally discovered it was possible. We didn’t have the internet back then so you know. More free time.
I remember being pretty young when I first heard about a kid with a peanut allergy. He wasn’t a kid anyone had met but we all heard some version of the story. The one I knew was that one day on the school bus a kid ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Tiny particles of the peanut butter floated through the air to the back of the bus where the kid was sitting by himself. Nobody noticed anything was wrong until the bus got to school and the kid never got out. The bus driver thought he fell asleep but when he tried to wake him the horrible truth was discovered. This story was of course told while riding in the very same bus where the kid died… and I was sitting in his exact seat!
