I know I have inundated you with Halloween lately; however, I’ve noticed something that I must share.

First off, chocolate is chocolate and I’m not complaining; but I gotta tell you this!

Secondly, most of you know that I live in Texas. Texas is hot, that’s no secret.

Now, let’s add up these two facts. Halloween candy/chocolate is sitting on our store shelves which means it was shipped in weeks ago. (Why is it that when goods are transported on a ship it is called cargo and when it goes via a truck it is called a shipment?) Anyway… the chocolate was shipped to us, in massive box trucks, that aren’t air conditioned.

So, when the rest of you open a Reese’s peanut butter pumpkin, it looks like a pumpkin. When you open a Hershey’s chocolate tombstone, it has detail, it has writing that you can make out.

Here is what I get when I open a chocolate:

    Yay, can’t say we have that problem at Hallowe’en. They’re calling for snow on Thursday.

    You might lose the shape or the message but you do not lose the chocolate. Do you understand me soldier?

    I dunno. Sometimes I dig a little Dadaism in my chocolates. ;)

  7. I would just be grateful Texas beat Oklahoma this past weekend.

  8. HA! Sadly it happens at Easter here too! LOL I’m just glad someone else is already eating candy…I think I’ve eaten my weight in tootsie rolls already!
