A to Z Blogging Challenge: V is for Veruca


"Don't care how, I want it NOW!!!!"

I realize that she was supposed to be a model for how not to act, but she was my frigging hero growing up.  (Explains a lot, doesn't it?)

Say what you will, but that little bundle of fiesty had goals
"I want the world"
Very specific goals
"I want the WHOLE world."
Not to mention a clear vision of what she was planning on doing with said world
"I want to lock it all up in my pocket, it's MY bar of chocolate give it to me now!"

As an over-emotional Taurus child, I felt a bond with Veruca.  I too wanted the whole world and I  was not a fan of sharing.  Unfortunately, when I said "Give it to me now!" I usually ended up in time out. 

Seriously, what's wrong with wanting it all?  What's wrong with asking for it all?  Yes, you should probably skip the total melt down temper tantrum afterwards (or risk being labled a bad egg.)

I say embrace your inner Veruca Salt and go after your dreams.


Ironically, this showed up on my FB today:

But, I do remember it getting me a mega butt whoppin'... ; )


  1. I absolutely love this. As a fellow Taurus, I can empathize with wanting it all. Sometimes, my head spins because there is so much I want to do. There's just not enough time to do it all. Great post.

  2. I. Want. It. All! And I am not ashamed to admit it, now if I wouldn't be so lazy and make it happen.

    1. LOL!!!! I think lazy is my own personal safety feature that's saving the world from Evil Twin domination ;)

  3. Lately my family has been repeating the commercial with the guy talking to the children where the girl says, "I want more, I want more, I need more..." Love Willy Wonka.

  4. I always kind of liked Veruca. If nothing else, it's a great name.

  5. Brings to mind the song lyric "Primadonna girl all she wanted was the world" and why not indeed.

    1. LOL!!! I've been sidetracked by They Might Be Giants
      "I don't want the world, I just want your half."
      *which I say to the Good Twin, a lot!!! *
