Yesterday was my friend Katie's birthday, so I'm dedicating today's post to her, a true candy lover. She has the unique distinction of being the only person I've ever known who will willingly choose a 3 Musketeers over other candy bars.
We became friends in high school. I was a sophomore, she was a freshman and we both worked at the library. She invited me to her house one day and we decided to walk to 7-11 and get some snacks. Now you have to understand, Katie is Barbie-doll beautiful, tall and blonde. So when she bought three candy bars and ate them one after the other, I was mighty impressed. Here was someone who loved candy as much as I did! But I'll never forget that her first choice was a 3 Musketeers. When I questioned her about this, she said, "I don't know. I guess I just figure that they have the most chocolate." Hmm. I wouldn't call that stuff in the middle "chocolate," but I appreciate her sentiment. Happy Birthday Beastie!
