Easter Basket fun...burp!
I made Easter baskets for the daughters who live locally and delivered them to them and their families. (For non-local daughter I sent $ for her to buy for the family.) For Lucinda and her husband I included wine, fresh fruit, nuts, candy, and bookmarks. For dddragon, et al, I gave fruit, candy, nuts, bookmarks. The candy was peeps, chocolate eggs (with either peanut butter or coconut creme fillings), etc. I actually can't remember it all.
Lucinda was going to get jelly beans as well. But the bag came open on the way out to her house. Okay, ...so I ripped it open with my teeth. Then I had to eat every one of those little buggers, 'cause I couldn't stick a partly eaten bag of candy in a pretty basket, now could I? No, of course not. So I had to cover up my sin and eat all those suckers. Since the daughters' father and I had just been out to eat, and I had an entire live Maine lobster, I'm pretty stuffed. Actually, the lobster I ate was not live when I ate it. But it was alive when we walked in and saw it in the lobster tank. I feel so guilty. About the jelly beans I mean. The lobster looked pretty vicious.
But at least no one knows that I ate all that candy. Nope. No one will ever know about the jelly bean caper. It's my secret for life. I might tell about the coconut creme chocolate egg and one measly little peep that I ate, but no, on second thought, why? People don't need to know everything.
