Yep, that’s what I told myself over the weekend after I let my son convince me that we needed to try Buddy the Elf’s favorite delicacy, spaghetti with syrup.
“We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.” ~Buddy the Elf
Somehow last year I was able to avoid fulfilling the oft repeated request until the Christmas season was over and Buddy the Elf’s strange eating habits were lost in the shuffle of the New Year.
This year I was not so lucky. My son caught me at a weak moment, and before I even knew what had happened I was standing at the stove cooking some spaghetti noodles.
He added some syrup and topped the dish off with a crumbled brown sugar poptart. Sounds pretty disgusting, doesn’t it?
He gave it a thumbs up and actually ate most of the plate. And then he begged me to taste it. Really, really begged. Pleading puppy-eye begged.
Guess what? It’s not totally disgusting. I didn’t even gag.
Enjoy getting ready for the holidays. Here’s a few of my very favorite Buddy the Elf quotes to help you get through your day.
Buddy: I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly twirly gum drops, and then I walked through the Lincoln Tunnel.
Buddy:“I’m sorry I ruined your lives, and crammed eleven cookies into the VCR.”
Buddy to Jovie:I think you’re really beautiful and I feel really warm when I’m around you and my tongue swells up.
Buddy to the fake Santa: You stink. You smell like beef and cheese! You don’t smell like Santa.
Buddy: The best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear.

Buddy: It’s just like Santa’s workshop! Except it smells like mushrooms… and everyone looks like they wanna hurt me…
