Title The All-Day Sucker
Description THE ALL-DAY SUCKER Agnes 0. Anderson Ephraim, Utah Senior Citizen Division Second Place Anecdote They were called "All-Day-Suckers," They were just a penny apiece and would last ALL Day Long. It was new and wonderful and of course I would like to try this exciting new confection. So ... 1 went to my mother and asked if I might have an egg to buy one. "Please Mother? They last all day. Could I?" looked at me thoughtfully a moment and then replied: "My dear, I think you better eat the egg." Of course I was very disappointed, but tried not to show it. Then after sizing up the situation she added: "But you may have some honey!" In those days my folks bought honey in large square tin cans which would set up and go sugary. So I went down in our cool cellar and cut a large chunk of honey, put it on a clean piece of paper, while I had visions of the mysterious treat. The honey didn't quite satisfy my childish curiosity. I was dreaming of the "All Day Sucker." The honey proved to be too much and too sweet, so I climbed down from my perch and went into the house feeling somewhat imposed upon. But my dear sweet mother for all practical purposes must have felt good when she fed me an omelet next morning made from the whole egg. Sometime later when 1 was privileged to indulge in this special So my mother was right again. -16-
