Sundays were my favorite growing up.
Comics. Some of you out there remember newspapers. I still love them. When I was a wee Square Peg, my pops would buy the giant Sunday version of The Washington Post, which meant a voluminous comics section, which meant a color comics section, at that (the weekday comics were black and white), which meant me spending hours upon hours in our basement, reading and laughing at the antics of Beetle Bailey, Blondie, Cathy, and breathlessly seeing the latest in Peter Parker’s unrequited love for Mary Jane Watson. It was glorious. I also loved reading the Style section and perusing others parts of the paper, filling my mind with facts and people and stories. I’d wait for my Dad to finish reading and then he’d over a section to me. These were our moments and I remember them well.
Coffee. This didn’t only happen on Sundays, but the memory of Sundays and doing this is vivid: my mom would drink her warm cup of java and leave a little behind for me. I’d “sneak” into the kitchen and finish it up, swooning over her masterful mix of coffee, cream, and sugar. Glorious. These days, I can’t handle the caffeine like I used to, but boy, did I love standing by the kitchen counter and taking in that warm sweetness.
Feeling nostalgic today. Did you have a favorite day growing up?

Thanks for sharing. Sometimes the best memories the simple ones that take place with the people we love.
One of my favorite memories is sitting on the porch with my mom while she drinks black coffee. I don’t know how she drank is black. I like my coffee mocha flavored or with milk or cream lol
Thanks for reading. I completely agree; those memories are so dear and so worthy of cherishing. Wow, I’m amazed by anyone who can drink coffee black without anything yummy added or milk. I need flavor! Thanks again for reading and for sharing that memory with your mom. 🥰
Yeah I don’t get how anyone can drink black coffee. But I guess it’s an acquired taste lol
Definitely has to be haha
The colored comics and style sections were literally the best
Indeed they were. 😊
