Lester

By Shel Silverstein

Lester was given a magic wish
By the goblin who lives in the banyan tree,
And with his wish he wished for two more wishes-
So now instead of just one wish, he cleverly had three.
And with each one of these
He simply wished for three more wishes,
Which gave him three old wishes, plus nine new.
And with each of these twelve
He slyly wished for three more wishes,
Which added up to forty-six -- or is it fifty-two?
Well anyway, he used each wish
To wish for wishes 'til he had
Five billion, seven million, eighteen thousand thirty-four.
And then he spread them on the ground
And clapped his hands and danced around
And skipped and sang, and then sat down
And wished for more.
And more...and more...they multiplied
While other people smiled and cried
And loved and reached and touched and felt.
Lester sat amid his wealth
Stacked mountain-high like stacks of gold,
Sat and counted -- and grew old.
And then one Thursday night they found him
Dead -- with his wishes piled around him.
And they counted the lot and found that not
A single one was missing.
All shiny and new -- here, take a few
And think of Lester as you do.
In a world of apples and kisses and shoes
He wasted his wishes on wishing.

Find me someone that doesn’t love nostalgia, summer and popsicles, and i’ll pay you a million dollars. I’m willing to bet this because I’m so confident that such a person doesn’t exist.  Then, find me someone that doesn’t love all these things, but together with rum, vodka and tequila. Pretty hard to find, right?

Well, if you are just like the rest of us, then you’ll be jumping for joy over the new Buzz Pop Cocktails, the adult version of our childhood favourite candy, push pops.  They are just like the one’s from the good old days, but this time, they are full of booze.

Not only are they booze fulled, but they are also full of tasty and quality ingredients such as fresh fruits and premium liquors (according to their website at least).  They contain no high fructose corn syrup, and no artificial colors or flavors.  If this wasn’t enough, they’ve also got an entire 75 flavours to choose from that rotate throughout the seasons, such as Southern Blue, Pink Paradise and Blueberry Mania.  That’s overwhelming incredible.

They thankfully ship across the U.S, so you’re in luck.
