Peanuts

“Peanuts” was what Tom said when asked what his favorite food was even though his favorite food was probably closer to something like lasagna or roasted marshmallows. Things of softer texture. Tom didn’t actually even particularly care for peanuts.

Time and time again he would get a peanut butter birthday cake from his parents. Today, the number 27 was spelled out in beautifully roasted peanuts. Today, like always, he would give his piece to the dog.

But peanuts reminded Tom of circuses and school fairs and boardwalks and so this is what he said to people when they asked why peanuts.
