Darn them...

Around every Easter time we volunteer to help fill some plastic eggs for a big community Egg Hunt sponsored by our church. At church we are given bags of plastic eggs and even the candy to stuff inside. How hard is that? A piece of cake!! We could do hundreds without breaking a sweat, but there are many volunteers at church...so we just get a few bags. Thank goodness for that this year!!


Why???


Well, let me share a little story with you....



This is the usual kind of candies that come home with us. The variety changes year to year...but it's usually along these lines. No problem. I can live without this kind of candy and it does nothing to tempt me. It doesn't even know my name.


These are the eggs for this year. Just 84 eggs to fill. We were given a bag of the above candy for one bag of plastic eggs. For the other bag of plastic eggs we were given......

Uh oh...we have a problem!! It not only knows my name, it knows my husband's name and my daughter's name. It began calling within mere minutes of entering our home.




Hellooo, sweetie! Isn't it pretty? Don't you just feel your spit glands going into overdrive? Can you hear it calling you, too?




Told you we had a problem! We are weak against this darn things!

It cost me $5 today to go out and buy a couple of these....

They are now all safely nestled inside plastic eggs and taped for good measure! Next year...I will have to preview the goods coming home with us. Depending on my mood....I might only bring the chocolate home. ;o)
