It sits on the shelf above the tv.
My sugar jar. The one that used to hold a kilo or two of common or garden variety white sugar.
Until Flick got her hands on it…
Now? Sugar of a different kind…2 kilos (4.8lb) of Gummi Skittles. Sigh… you know how hard it is to just look at it right??
You can tell who’s been eating em by the top layer… as it stands at the moment the top layer are all red and purple. That means the green, orange and yellow ones have been consumed by someone…
Which serves to illustrate my candy theory, one I have subscribed to for a long time now and is backed up by extensive research and observation of human behaviour.
It’s actually more of a jelly bean theory really as it started by observing that people tended to veer towards a particular color when putting their hand in the bean bowl. You see it seems to me one is either primarily green motivated or red motivated.
One chooses tart v sweet, citrus v berry, green versus red.
Me? Yeah, I’m the green freak… green, then yellow then orange. So you can guess who’s been in the Skittle jar. Flick? happily she’s the red head… so we are mfeo, she’ll happily clear the top layer for me so I can get to the bottom of the jar where the rest of the green ones are.
Happily it’s not jelly beans, because the black ones would still be there.. They’re in a class of their own.
