Peep show…

April 15, 2021, 11:41 AM

No, not like that.  Get your mind out of the gutter.

On Monday, April 5, Elyse and I went up to Westminster, where we saw the annual Peep show, held in the former Sears store at TownMall of Westminster.  There, we saw a number of displays made out of Peeps, those marshmallow rabbit and duck-shaped candies that some people like to eat around Easter.  All in all, it was pretty fun, though I admit that the ones that incorporated the pandemic into their theming made me cringe a little bit, because I am so over that (admittedly, though, I was over it from the moment that it started).

In any case, here are some of the highlights from the visit.

Peeps candlestick.  Elyse was disappointed that this one was not for sale, but I told her that if it was that important to her, we could make something just like it at home, since it wouldn't be that hard to do.

I really cringed over this one, with the Peeps in school with spaced-out desks and wearing masks.  Way to throw the pandemic in our faces in a not-so-funny way.

So there you go, I suppose.  A good time was had by all, and aside from the ones throwing the pandemic in everyone’s face (because trust me, we get enough reminders about it already without this adding to the noise), it was pretty lighthearted and fun.
