I pride myself on having a lot of knowledge combined with a large number of experiences. Because of that, when one of those little overlooked things always catches me by surprise. I mean, I have been to the top of mountains, spoken in front of thousands, sampled all manner of daring escapades – then why did this escape me so long? I am talking about the candy known as Runts. Yes, the little miniature fruits sold by Nestle under the Willy Wonka brand are brand new to me!
I’ve always avoided them because I assumed they were sour. I detest sour things. It took a conversation last night with Logan to enlighten me. He handed me one of the banana shaped ones (which he assured me were the best) and I loved it! They are very sweet and yes, the banana is the best. Not only do I love the fact that as I approach a half century, there is still much to learn each and every day. I am grateful not only that there is still so much to learn, but that I am still amazed by all the seemingly small wonders this life has to offer.
