Rescue

My sister M1 works in a bakery supply store. Sometimes when packaging is damaged or other adverse circumstances occur, she can bring home products for use around here.

For instance, there are about 50 pounds of high quality milk chocolate pieces just sitting here. The store was getting rid of them and she was going to take them to the food bank, but one of her kids opened them and so they couldn't go there. Thus we must give them a good home.

Last night we were pulling pieces off a big block of caramel. We were fairly well behaved; after a couple pieces each we quit in favor of ice water and Mario Party 8. But I just had to share M1's quote:

"Some people rescue pets. I rescue candy."

I love my family!

WOW... a sister who rescues CANDY???

Could you adopt me, please? I really enjoy non-caramel chocolate, so I won't conflict with salgal & Christopher....

(Yes, I know, I'm a random stranger asking for adoption... but it never hurts to ask, right??? LOL)
