There was a happening some months back that left me dumbfounded until today, Thursday, July 20. Listen to this conversation between a student and myself in a classroom.
Myself: Good morning class.
Students: Good morning sir!
Myself: Why is your class not swept?
Jossy (quickly cut in): I came late to the class sir.
Myself: In that case, you would not have your refreshment for today.
Jossy (With remorsefulness): It’s Lollipop sir, I would rather prefer hard labor to my Lollipop being ceased.
Myself( in disbelief): What is so special in ordinary candy?
Other students (started laughing, while Jossy was crying childishly).
I have never heard of July 20 as the National Lollipop Day in the United States of America until around 1:05 p.m. in Nigeria, that Daily Post sent the daily prompt for the day, Lollipop into my gmail box. I quickly searched for Google to know what makes the day an important day.
A lollipop is a type of confectionery consisting of a sweetmeat of hard candy or water-ice mounted on a stick and intended for licking (Wikipedia). I got to know that Lollipop can be simply made with three ingredients: sugar, corn syrup, and the flavoring of your choice mixed with water. It can be made in a variety of different shapes and sizes.
This is the traditional hard-candy lollipop!
