I just got the SP12 question #2 in my inbox and realized I completely flaked on question #1. Oops.
1. What's your favorite summertime drink?
Del's Lemonade. It's frozen lemonade, only 100 times better. You can only get it in Rhode Island and Southeast Massachusetts. You can order a powder mix, but trust me, it's a gazillion times better straight from the truck.
2. As a kid, what did you look forward to most about summer vacation/break/holiday?
Summer camp. Two weeks in a tent with seven other girls. No parents (the camp counselors seemed so old, but now I realize they were barely older than us), no little brothers, tons of fun.
