spring in Arkansas

Four ways I know spring has pretty much arrived here in Arkansas:
  1. Green is creeping up and everywhere. Even on our dilapidated shed+scrap metal pile.
  2. Green means pollen, pollen means ALLERGIES FOR EVERYONE! (read is Oprah voice!)
  3. Sonic has half price shakes after 8! (if you are insta-friends with me you know I love the berry lavender), but always a safe and delicious choice is coconut. Tip: ALWAYS request/demand a thick shake with no graham cracker crumbs. No runny shakes for this girl. And no unnecessary crumbs trying to pass as "crust".
  4. ROAD KILL. If you don't live here, then I'm sorry, you do not know the true meaning of the word. Armadillos+skunks+raccoons+what-was-that's?! sprinkle the road like powdered sugar on a beignet. Or pulled pork on nachos. Or fried pickles on your table.
