Candy, candy, candy...

As a wedding gift we got a pretty glass bowl. Aaron insists that it should always be full of candy. The bowl was getting empty, and I was on my way to Wal-Mart, so I figured I should get some more candy.

Since halloween is a few weeks away there is an over abundance of candy to choose from. I always go for the mix because I like to have the variety. So I'm looking at the candy, trying to decide what mix to get. Should I get regular and peanut M&M's? Or should I go for the mix with that Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, Hershey's Bars, and Baby Ruth?

The truth is that when we have a mix there's always a candy bar that we don't like. It always ends up rotting in the bottom of the bowl. Last time it was Nestle Crunch Bar. I was going to get the Reese's Mix but I knew that those plain chocolate Hershey bars would sit there and never get eaten.

So what did I do? I said what the heck I'm going to make my own variety. I bought my candy and went home. Than Aaron walked in the door.

He's like,"Ooh, candy! Nice mix you got. Wow, I didn't know that Twix, Dots, and Peanut Butter Cups came in the same bag."

I said,"Well, umm, they don't."

This is the point where his eyes bugged out. "You mean to tell me you bought three bags of candy today!"

"Well, yeah, I couldn't decide what mix I wanted to get and I knew that we would end up not eating all of the candy. But, hey, they were only like $2 a bag! That's a pretty good deal. Plus, I figured the candy would last for awhile."

He's like,"Well, ok. That's not so bad."

At this point I was very relieved because I knew that Aaron understood my logic, whether or not it was right.

I probably would have done the same. At least you know that it will all get eaten, eventually.

Yeah, it's not like candy rots... or does it?

You are going to be a very good wife! I should probably go out and buy candy for my husband.

I like Nestle's Crunch.

You will send them to me.

Ha! Great story. And I will eat your wondrous Hershey bars the next time you decide to get a mix.
