Blue and Blonde Sprinkles

Blue and Blonde Sprinkles

Once upon a time, there was a brownie. As brownies go, one might think there was nothing particularly special about this confection. But closer examination revealed the most surprising fact: the presence of blue and blonde sprinkles.

That’s right, blue and blonde sprinkles.

Now, I imagine that if someone were to ask if you had ever seen sprinkles on a brownie, you might say that you had. But blue and blonde sprinkles? I rather doubt it.

That’s because this was one special brownie. If you doubt that, consider this. It cast a shadow. Not a square shadow, and not a rectangular shadow, but rather a daisy shadow. Yes, a shadow shaped like a daisy.

But that’s not all. There’s one other thing you should know. This brownie would never be eaten, because it was meant for better things. When held up to the light, it formed the silhouette of a trefoil. A green trefoil.

All pretty amazing stuff for a brownie, don’t you think? But then, this was a brownie with blue and blonde sprinkles.

“Blue and Blonde Sprinkles” is the third of eight short stories in Blonde-haired, Blue-eyed Adventures, a collection of stories about my daughter’s adventures, written for her twenty years ago. It’s a reminder of the fun of special times, first as a Daisy, then as a Brownie in the Girl Scouts.
