Nutcracker Sweet

I've learned over the years that writing about candy is a good way to a) keep your cupboard stocked  with sweets and b) ensure that you'll never lose weight, but it's not the best way to fund a lavish lifestyle of random dollar store visits and twice-a-year haircuts. No, for that, I write a weekly newpaper column about, well, food and booze. So I've got all three food groups represented in my writing portfolio. In any case, for this week's newspaper article, I decided to write about candy, since June is National Candy Month. I'll post my dissertation here after it goes to print. But check out this treasure I found outside one of the candy stores I visited:
A Nutcracker pillow. In June. On the sidewalk. I don't know about you, but I know that when I go walking downtown, I always like to take a festive pillow with me, just in case I start feeling a little snoozy. I had a grand vision of photographing the pillow's progress (would someone move it to the bench? Would it get kicked to the curb?), but when I went back the next day, it was gone.
