When I say, “I love my peeps!” – it is subject to contextual analysis. I use the term “peeps” both in the slang context and in the literal context. In the slang context I mean my people, my tribe, my wild and wacky collection of friends and family…I love my peeps!
In the literal context I mean the squishy, colored, overly sweet marshmallow chicks (and now bunnies as well) that are synonymous with Easter basket basics. A pack of marshmallow peeps are like a sugar IV…I love my peeps!
Only once a year do my peeps’ paths cross – Easter. So today when I say, “I love my peeps!” it carries dual meaning and twice the sugary content.
I wish all of you a thoroughly enjoyable Easter Sunday with all the peeps that matter to you!
Day one thousand and seven of the new forty – obla di obla da
