There is nothing 'fun' about fun-sized candy bars which are priced to sell and staring me in the face whenever I enter a convenience store, tomorrow they will all be on sale. Large bags mixed with Snickers, Three Musketeers, Butterfingers and more are saying 'eat me.' And there is an over abundance at this time thanks to Halloween.. My friend Miranda purchases her candy today because she just can't stand to have it in the house as it's too much 'fun' to eat. I purchase candy I have no desire to eat, which means no chocolate. I've bags of Mike n' Ike's, Mary Jane's and Fun Dip. No little goblin will turn their nose up to this stuff and I won't eat it because it's not my preference. If I had a bowl of fun-sized M&M's in the house they would last maybe two days and I'd feel terribly guilty when I was staring at the empty bowl they were placed it. Then I'd convince myself that I needed to run ten miles to burn off all that sugar. I do hide the Fun Dip from my kids, this stuff is pure colored sugar. Kids on sugar equals a crazed parent. I try to keep most sugar consumption to daytime hours when there's a chance of working it out of your system easier by doing homework and chores. Maybe Halloween should happen earlier in the day so our sugared kids can do homework and chores after consuming massive amounts of their sweet 'loot'. If I'm supplying the costume and candy it's only right, right?
