A Big Box Of Valentine Candy For My Birthday...





A Big Box Of Valentine Candy For My Birthday...
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee


Well... my birthday is coming up.  It's on Valentine's Day.  No, no... I'm not trying to solicit 'Happy Birthdays' from anyone.  :)))  I want to tell you something, see what you think about it.

Really, tell me what do you think?  :)))

Skip told me what he's going to do for my birthday!  I'm going to go get my hair fixed like I want it (I'm thinking about a perm... I love 'big' hair, or I might make it two colors :)))... and we are going out for a nice meal... we haven't decided 'where' yet.

This is where I ask you to tell me what do you think.  Now... I told Skip that I was going to pass this by all of you.  It is silly, funny... I know... but, I'm curious.....

Skip is going to buy me a big, beautiful box of Valentine candy for my birthday, also.  He always does this!  The way I eat it... makes that box last for a long time!

This is what he said to me regarding it:  "Now, don't be biting pieces of candy in half, and leaving them in the box!"

I thought about it, and I said, "Skip, when we get our own box of candy, we should be able to eat it just our own favorite way.  A box of candy is like a steak on the grill.... one is going to cook it to perfection... to our own individual taste."  I told him that I should be able to 'eat it my way'... after I've shared with him!  :)))

I have a habit of biting this piece, that piece of candy in a box of candy when I know it's mine.... I make the box of candy last a very long time.  Most people would have their candies eaten up in no time... not me, I love to savor the wonderful flavors, and ... take my own sweet time.  :)))

Anyway, I will 'sample' here, there... leaving 'bitten' pieces behind.  Yes, I really do (I really wonder if anyone else does... I've never heard).  My box of candy becomes a box of candy that I've tasted 'half' of... all the other 'halves' are left behind, for another time  :)))

My question to you (answer me, I would love to tell Skip 'if' you are on my side' :))) is:

Don't you think when you are given a box of candy ...that the way you eat it.... should be as individual as you are... you know, like when you grill your steak just for your taste?  :)))  You know... eat it 'your way'?

Remember, this is all in good fun!  We are just curious.  I told Skip I wanted to see what 'you all' said.  We used to have Tommy to 'decide' these things, tell us what he thought.

Skip used to tell me he was going to tell Tommy something I did, or said... and see what he said.  I would laugh at him.  I miss that so much... Tommy would laugh at us 'arguing over some silly thing'.

So, what do you say?  When you get a box of candy, do you eat it 'the way you want to'?

Do you have a favorite way to eat your box of candies?  Is my way 'so different'?

Guess what?  I eat doughnuts the same way.... mind you, only 'my doughnuts'... not Skip's.  I come back later to get my 'other half'!  There's always 'half'.... left!

  1. I agree with you, my family get frustrated with me too, at Easter time I can keep an egg for many months until I really feel like it, and of course they have to keep asking if I want it. I love chocolate cover teddy bears, and would like to keep them in the fridge until I feel like them, I usually have 2 and save the rest, well I used to be able to keep the rest until I felt like more, but now everyone thinks they should help me eat them. Enjoy your candy your way, and your steak toooooo....

  2. Hi Gloria! :)

    Thanks for the visit and comment! :)

    Yes, she was an addict and it killed her!

    Never thought coca cola would actually be dangerous!

    Learning I was being poisoned by Aspartame should have been a wake-up call!!!

    As for the box of candy thing: It's your chocolates, eat them any way you wish, but keep them in the refrigerator - bacteria likes sugar!!! :(

    Happy birthday sweety!

    Love and squishy hugs!

    1. Prenin, I'll remember what you said, and keep them in the refrigerator! I'll be careful how I bite them, too. :))) Thank you for the birthday wish! <3 Granny Gee/Gloria

  3. I do believe you can tell that you are the winner in this!! I think you should be able to eat your chocolates and anything that is yours, your way! Besides, it will keep you from gaining too much weight too fast. I can't say I have ate chocolates that way but I have ate other foods that way. Sorry Tell Skip--You don't win this one! Love, Ms. Nancy

    1. Thank you, Prenin. We had a very unusual, wonderful, special day. Prenin, I have never had so many people to say 'Happy Birthday' as I have today... on my Facebook page! I am so humbled, so amazed, and happy. How special is that!!! I'm answering everyone back if it takes all night. That means the world to me. What a wonderful birthday, and Valentine's Day I've had... the best in my life. I haven't felt happiness like this in such a long time. You, and all my friends mean the world to me... your words touch my heart just as when someone puts a piece of wood into the fireplace to keep the fire going... I stay warm inside. I can't tell you how special that feeling is... I'm thankful to have Skip, our Pups, and all of you. I just wanted to tell you. Love, Granny Gee/Gloria <3 :)))
