my memories of sunflower seeds stretch back to being a youth in downtown albany. stopping at the bodega on my way to middle school and filling up on quarter waters, Doritoes, BBQ chips, and a pack of Sunflower Seeds. they were probably the most nutritious part of that so called breakfast. it was something we all did. spending the little money we had on empty calories…oh to be young again.
now every time i ride the train and see a pile of spat out seeds on the train floor, i get a nice nostalgic feeling – mixed with a nauseousness due to seeing re-gurgitated food on a public floor (eww).
do you guys have any good stories on sunflower seeds or what memories they muster up for you?
