Jelly beans

Dropped by the Wal-Mart yesterday to buy a couple of plastic storage totes for my wife to store last winters sweaters in, and noticed that all of the Easter candy was on sale for 50% off. Most of the candy looked like some version of Peeps, or chocolate lollipops, and I just kept walking. At the end of the aisle, however, were some Jolly Rancher jelly beans. It has been at least three or four years since I’ve had Jolly Rancher candy of any sort, and I was remembering just how intense the flavor is; so I decided to go ahead and buy two bags of them. I took them home and opened one bag, and put it beside my computer. Every few minutes that I am sitting here typing, I grab two or three jelly beans and pop them in my mouth. The flavors are even more intense than I remembered – I don’t think that this candy is going to last very long around here. I might just have to give the other bag to my wife and ask her to take them to her office to share with her co-workers!
