More Popsicles, Please

Postscript: Today’s New York Times reports not only that scientists found no correlation between dyes and hyperactivity in most children, but that food without coloring isn’t any fun. And for my 8-year-old, fun is pretty much the key ingredient of life. I am headed to the grocery store today, and I just happened to notice two items, written on my shopping list in her large, blocky print: “Gushers,” which are disgusting brightly colored gummy things with liquid centers, and “More popcicles” (sic). I guess she finished the old box already. That may explain why she can’t spell, but I’m going to buy them anyway.
