The thing is, you can't trust other people to pick out candy for you. My candy tastes are very specific. For example. Swedish fish: "Aww, my favorite!" Gummi bears: "Are we even in the same RELATIONSHIP?" Chocolate covered peanuts? You're in. Chocolate-covered blueberries? Yeah, thanks. I love having diarrhea.
This is why I asked the BHE if I could buy my own Valentine's Day candy this year. I think it's a perfect idea. Then he won't have to agonize over what to buy me, and I won't have to pretend I like peppermint patties. (Is that even chocolate on the outside? What IS that stuff in there? Why is it cold? Is it toothpaste?)
So next week I'm going to buy myself my favorite candy. Starburst and godiva chocolates are a perfect combination.
