A Downer of a Candy Drawer


Dear Dad,

I know my trip home was completely last-minute and that you have had an extremely full plate with the new house. (Which is absolutely beautiful, by the way. Wowza.)

However, I am a little disappointed in the candy drawer.

I know what you are thinking, dad – people would kill for that candy drawer! Look at the diversity in flavor and sugar content! Yes, you probably are right…but where are the Chick-o-Sticks? The Blow Pops? The Sour Patch Kids? Do you expect me to have my usual gut-ripping stomachaches from eating a Hershey bar? I need the fake sugar chemical stuff! I need familiarity! I am having an emotional crisis!

Where is the LOOOOOOVE, man?


Your Loving Daughter

p.s. – The Starbursts are stale.

    OK, so this is in response to your twitter post about a sound machine, but as I don’t have one of those, I’m commenting here.

    This thing may not be the most aesthetically pleasing device ever created, but it works well, and the sound is really nice. Everyone in my family has used them for years . Anyway, I grew up using this particular brand, and they last FOREVER. Like, I think my grandparents have one from the seventies, I shit you not. So, check it out.
