CuppaDad is an avid bike rider.
CuppaMom is an avid Hostess Snoball connoisseur.
She basically eats "color groups" - and pink is her favorite - cotton candy, pink popcorn, and Snoballs.
Two of her other food groups are chips and corn syrup (gum drops, gummy bears, orange slices, cinnamon bears, Starburst). You will never open the cabinets to not find at least one of these foods.
Cycling season is here - so every visit to my parents' includes catching some Giro time along with a full recap from my dad about the previous days' crashes and scandals.
The cycling world has a lot of both.
I think my mom's favorite team (yes, cycling is a team sport, believe it or not) is Jelly Belly.
Otherwise she really has zero interest in watching the races.
The other day, they were both excitedly talking over each other to tell me about something that had been on right before I arrived.
This commercial, with a cyclist, who trains super hard,and perseveres through 4 flats, only to show up at a convenience store for a pink Snoball.
This has given my mom a whole new lease on her food groups.
Wednesday, she asked my dad to bring her her "health foods." She thinks they are the next Powerbar or Gu.
She also thinks she is very funny.
For the record, I tried a bite of a Snoball for the first time that day.
My dad sent me a link to the commercial this morning...
It is 50% dad and 50% mom.
And I 100% love it
And in case you were wanting today's race report, dad said "great race today! uphill finish!"
I'm sure I'll be catching highlights on my lunch break.
