Wacky Wednesday #77—Alphabet Soup

Did you eat Alphabet Soup as a kid? I remember being delighted that there were letters in my soup. Tiny pasta letters.
 
Fast forward a few years and today I’m wearing my love of soup.
 
 
My bowl of soup has spilled onto my clothes, but hey—sometimes this happens when your soup bowl is on your head.
Most alphabet soups have light-colored pasta letters but I like a lot of color and so my soup is a rainbow of letters.
Playing with your food isn’t exactly encouraged. But listen—I’m a playful gal. So play I will.
 
By some online accounts, alphabet soup actually dates back to 1867.
 
Here’s an ad for alphabet soup from 1968. I think it’s adorable.
 
Soup really brings me back to lunches at my grandparents’ house, when lunch was always a hot meal—a cup of soup and a half sandwich. I still love soup.

 
All ingredients supplies for my spilled soup were ones I had on hand already. But if I had to put a cost on this costume, I spent roughly 30 cents on hot glue sticks and 50 cents on felt. Total: 80 cents. Cheaper than a dented can of soup with the label half ripped off, relegated to the store’s sale rack.

Hey, spills happen. But as the famous saying goes: don’t cry over spilled soup.
