I’m not quite getting why those in my (rather) small town seem to have peanuts at their graduation parties. It’s not like we’re at the circus, right?
Trying to understand, I asked my Godchild and the conversation went like this:
Me: Why do people out here seem to have peanuts at graduation parties?
Smart & Gorgeous Godchild: I don’t know…just to snack on while socializing?
Me (Showing my Age): It’s like the Ground Round. Remember that restaurant where they used to serve peanuts and you could just toss the shells onto the floor?
Smart & Gorgeous Godchild: Oh…my Dad does that at home.
Me: I’ve seen him toss the shells to the dogs….
And still, I just don’t get it. Dessert, cheese and/or fruit platters? Yes. Peanuts? No.
