Wishful Thinking

Does anyone relate to this cartoon? Anyone? Anyone?

During my 10 years as a Weight Watcher leader, the single most alluring and bedeviling food that almost no dieter could resist was M & M’s.

How could so festively colored and seemingly benign a tidbit cause anything other than bliss?

M & M’s. For those of us of a certain age, the little brown bag filled with colorful candies that promised to “melt-in-your-mouth-not-in-your-hand” was the answer to a bad day at school. a scraped knee, a toothache (let’s not get into the chicken-or-the-egg analogy here).

And they were the perfect movie treat, sure to last throughout the entire picture if you sucked on them before crunching down on the sugary coating.

Do I sound nostalgic?  Sigh.

You bet I am.
