A Bowl of Peanut M&Ms

The principal at our school has 2 bowls on his desk.  One has peanut M&Ms, the other, raw almonds.  Both are fair game for all the employees at school.  The bowl of M&Ms needs to be replenished every day.  The bowl of almonds seems to never change. 
When I walk past his office in the mornings and see the bowl filled to the brim with the colorful morsels of deliciousness, I feel happy.




One day, while visiting with the principal; with the plan to satisfy my peanut M&M craving, I noticed the bowl was almost empty. Not letting that deter me, I said out loud  that I wanted an orange one.  He looked at me as I reached in to the bowl to retrieve the desired goody and said, "I knew you wanted that orange one, that's why I told everyone who came in to put it back!" 


It still tasted good!

I would definitely take the almonds, but only when the M&Ms were gone!

I would take the almonds if they were chocolate coated and then had a colorful candy shell on the outside.
I'm only joking. I happen to LOVE almonds. I get a large can of Blue Diamond Smokehouse almonds every Christmas in my stocking because Santa knows how much I love them. I've been getting them every year since I was in 7th grade. I like them raw and in salads too.
I think peanut M&Ms are the best, I can't stand the plain...they're just too.....plain.
I would choose a yellow one.

I like the way you think, lady!

And who cares how many people touched it? We work with kids all day and are inundated with germs.

Good for you! Not much deteeers me from something I want. The 10 second rule can even turn into lots more seconds. And a bite of everyones samich when they are not looking just to make sure that is good enough for them, is ok too.

Do the orange ones taste better? :)

You are definitely a woman after my own heart.

I have to say, orange, red, blue, green, whatever, it doesn't matter to me--they all taste great.

Ha! Our principal has a full jar of candy bars for the teachers to enjoy at our leisure. Kinda wish he had peanut M&Ms though.

Next time, tell him that you like all the other colors too. Maybe he's save them all for you :)

OK, that's funny.
I'm glad to know that you aren't a germaphobe.

wendy said...

oh, you are a brave gal. That is pretty funny that he said that to you...well of course, if he was saving it for YOU , you had to eat it eh.

believe it or not, I introduced my hubby to peanut M&M's just last weekend. Seriously. Has he been living in a cave.
