Four ways I know spring has pretty much arrived here in Arkansas:
- Green is creeping up and everywhere. Even on our dilapidated shed+scrap metal pile.
- Green means pollen, pollen means ALLERGIES FOR EVERYONE! (read is Oprah voice!)
- 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".
- 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.
