Those are just a few of some secrets I’ve been hiding.
And I have another.
It’s a really, really, really, big one.

My family drinks Kool-Aid.
A LOT.
Like buckets full.

I drank some when I finished painting.
It was Yellow.
I only buy Yellow or Pink Lemonade, and that weird flavor with no color.

Our favorite way to drink it is Freshly Homemade with Lemon.
Which just sounds weird.
But is yummy.
And it uses half the recommended amount of  Kool-Aid, and 1/2 fresh lemons. So it feels homey. The clown-ish.

So now you know. Judge me if you will.
