Leslie’s Daily To-Do’s – Eat a Chocolate Cupcake While Reading Poetry
To me, EVERY day is a reason to celebrate!!! Every morning on the show, I break the celebrating down for you by telling you ‘Today is…’ Here is how I plan on celebrating TODAY!!!
National Chocolate Cupcake Week - The annual celebration begins today. Invented during the 19th century, where they got their name remains a mystery. Really??? I’m guessing it’s because it is a CUP with a CAKE in it!! Hence…..CUP – CAKE!! Duh!!! Oh well, whatever, I’m hungry!!
Where can you get the best chocolate cupcakes in the Tri-State? How do YOU make chocolate cupcakes? Do you just buy them or do you have a secret recipe?
Shel Silverstein Day – I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE his children’s poetry! I used to read it to my kids before bed. If you have no idea what I’m talking, here is one of his most famous poems.
‘I cannot go to school today,’
Said little Peggy Ann McKay.
‘I have the measles and the mumps,
A gash, a rash and purple bumps.
My mouth is wet, my throat is dry,
I’m going blind in my right eye.
My tonsils are as big as rocks,
I’ve counted sixteen chicken pox
And there’s one more – that’s seventeen,
And don’t you think my face looks green?
My leg is cut, my eyes are blue -
It might be instamatic flu.
I cough and sneeze and gasp and choke,
I’m sure that my left leg is broke -
My hip hurts when I move my chin,
My belly button’s caving in,
My back is wrenched, my ankle’s sprained,
My ‘pendix pains each time it rains.
My nose is cold, my toes are numb,
I have a sliver in my thumb.
My neck is stiff, my spine is weak,
I hardly whisper when I speak.
My tongue is filling up my mouth,
I think my hair is falling out.
My elbow’s bent, my spine ain’t straight,
My temperature is one-o-eight.
My brain is shrunk, I cannot hear,
There is a hole inside my ear.
I have a hangnail, and my heart is -
what? What’s that? What’s that you say?
You say today is … Saturday?
G’bye, I’m going out to play!’
