Today was a BonBon Day. I didn’t know what a BonBon Day was until today, and I didn’t know what a BonBon Day was until my friend Margaret told me. A Bon Bon Day is when you spend a whole day in bed eating BonBons. Now Margaret told me she has never actually done this, spend a whole day in bed eating BonBons, and so today wasn’t literally a BonBon Day, but if you see BonBon Day as a metaphor, then today was a BonBon Day.
For the last two Art Shows at the Pig Barn Gallery, Margaret made sure all the food was out for the Artist’s Reception. (With Kim Gifford’s help at Anointing the Goddess) She cut the cheese into tiny pieces, found plates and bowls for the crackers and hummus, and even put a table cloth on the table (something I never would have thought of) Then she monitored the table getting rid of the empty plates and keeping the bees away. So I wanted to do something for her.
Margaret had never had her tarot cards read before and had been wanting to do it for a long time. So today I took her to Silver Moon in Brattleboro VT and visited Patti, my tarot card reader. Margaret and I walked around town, each had a half hour reading, then had lunch. On the way home we stopped into Crazy Russian Girls Bakery in Bennington and had cookies and a peach tart.
Somehow calling it a BonBon Day made it even more fun. Like it’s definitely something we should not be doing especially on a weekday and did it anyway. Makes me want to have more BonBon Days.
