Ode to the last M&M

standard April 20, 2009 4 responses

First one. Mmm. Sweet, salty, crunchy, and chocolaty. This could well be the ultimate candy. Another Peanut Butter M&M follows the first one. Then another. And another. I can’t stop. The sweet/salty combination is too good.

My hand snakes, unbidden, to the open packet, coaxing the little candies out of the small opening and popping them one after another into my waiting mouth.

I have to stop. These aren’t helping me lose these damn pounds. OK. Just one more. OK. Maybe two more. Fine. Maybe just one last handful. Oh! A red one, I love those. I have to eat it. And a blue one! I remember when those didn’t exist. Down the hatch it goes.

Shit! Half the bag is gone! OK. This time, for real, I’m putting the bag away. I can do this. I can stop.

Well, maybe after just one more…

Share Something Sweet

Have you sent any Valentines Day cards to anyone this year? No? Not yet? Well, it’s not too late and even better, if you procrastinated a bit, now you get to do a doubly good thing.

Hop over to http://www.sharesomethingsweet.com/send_something_sweet and share something sweet with everyone you know. For every card that you send from the Share Something Sweet site The Ferrero Company (of the infamous Ferrero chocolates) will donate $1 to Share Our Strength, a leading hunger relief organization.

So, what are you waiting for? Go send some cards and feed some children!

Oh, and then hop on over to The Lemonade Stand where in honor of this chocolatey love fest the wonderful people of The Ferrero Company and I are giving away not one but two boxes of chocolates.

Happy Valentines Day everyone. I love each and every one of you.
