I was in my local convenience store last night for gas (I won't say which one but it ends with a Z and I've written about it recently) and as I was standing in line waiting to pay I noticed the impulse candy display has been changed from Christmas to Easter. As sugar rush holidays go Easter is the big one in our house but what happened to Valentine's Day? There were some left over Reese's Peanut Butter Trees mixed in with the chocolate covered Peeps (who decided sugar coated marshmallows needed a layer of chocolate, exactly?) but no hearts which I found a little strange. I did find these next to the register and at least they're related to a holiday that falls between now and Easter.
Don't get me wrong, I love chocolate. I'm just not sure what molding it into a rodent is all about. Hearts are at least pretty. Groundhogs are...well, they're rodents. They're mean, they're smelly and they spread disease. Mmmm, tasty. I don't have muskrat love, either, and don't even get me started on how bad ferrets smell. One of my college roommates had a ferret and I could tell it was out of it's cage inside an aquarium set up from the showers at the other end of the hall. How the RAs never caught wind of it I'll never know.
Anyway, candy. Today's song is the remix of Bow Wow Wow's cover of "I Want Candy" from the Marie Antoinette soundtrack. I want the Chuck Taylors, actually. Have a great Tuesday!
