Hello and Welcome!
Our word for this week is Reminisce.
I was quite disappointed in Merriam Webster’s definition since it only said: the act of reminiscing (to find out more I would have to click on the word reminiscing) so I went to the Cambridge Dictionary where I found this definition for reminisce:
to talk or write about past experiences that you remember with pleasure.
This past week my husband had a box of Good & Plenty candies and offered me some. As he did we began talking about Choo Choo Charlie from the TV commercial that used to advertise Good & Plenty’s. Neither of us remembered the tune but my husband mentioned a girl in the commercial that I did not remember, so he went to his computer and was able to pull up the commercial.
After listening to the jingle a few time my husband sang it the rest of the evening. Since then at random times one of us will sing “Charlie says” to which the other replies melodically “Love my good & plenty’s”. Then we laugh. It’s just a fun little memory that can brighten our day.
Do you like Good & Plenty’s? Are there any TV commercials that bring back fond memories for you?
Thanks for visiting.
