LesterBy 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.
Trix is bringing back their iconic fruit-shaped pieces that we all cherished back in the ’90s. According to sources, after popular demand from devoted Trix fans, the classic fruity shapes will be making their way back onto shelves in the fall in 2018, which is right about NOW!
We’re not completely sure to be honest that they will be available this very second, but we are anxiously waiting for that epic moment. General Mills is also excited to be able to continue the legacy and bring some colorful joy to everyone’s morning.
For any millennial born after 1988, Trix will always be fruit-shaped in their nostalgic memories (it was first released in 1954, however only later on did it gain it’s fruit-shaped pieces). The cereal kept it’s unique shape for 15 years, and then in 2006, General Mills broke our hearts and brought it back to the original round shape, and we’re still not sure why even today.
Ever since, we’ve all been dreaming of a return of the fruity shapes, and well the time has finally come (approaching, at the very least).
