Boston has ill-prepared me for the world in a way that when I read anything that mentions sprinkles in any situation I immediately think of sprinkling glitter onto glue spots in art class or less commonly sometimes it’s light rain, but it’s only upon getting to the end of the sentence do I notice it makes no sense, only to realize they’re talking about jimmies. Honestly, you don’t grow up knowing that Jimmies is a fun New England word for…well, Jimmies are jimmies, we all know “sprinkles” is the actual funny word jimmies. Jimmies aren’t funny, they’re delicious.
