Day 10 is draw your favorite candy. I’m a big fan of candy. I love it, and would inhale it if I could do so and still live a healthy life.
As for my favorite candy, the candy I chose is actually tied with sour gummy worms. No particular brand, just mouth puckering gummies that fortunately happen to be shaped like creepy crawlies I cut open in middle school (don’t give me that look! It was in Biology class!).
I’m very unsatisfied with the quality of my drawing tonight, but to tell the truth I drew it in a hurry only by the light of my laptop screen. Mostly I screwed up the logo.
You see, for me, Smarties being candy is actually their tertiary purpose, and I get around to it eventually. But first, I lovingly unwrap the cellophane and sort all of the little discs into groups by color. Then I count them. I would always prefer to have an even distribution across the colors, but I never do. Occasionally, I’ll figure out what percentage blue I have, or figure out what the average stack is.
Secondarily, I like to build things with them. Usually pyramids. I love it when I can make a pyramid with each layer being one solid and separate color. It’s usually not possible.
Finally, I’ll get around to eating them, but not in any old way. First I eat any odd numbered pieces, so all stacks are even numbers. Then the largest stack disappears. Then the second largest, and so on and so forth.
How I love Smarties (and sometimes, I do just open the package and eat them, like a “normal” person).
With the gummy worms, there is no such ceremony. Package is open, worms are in mouth, I am happy. I’m not always weird.
And that’s it for today. Tomorrow’s post will be better. Yesterday’s was better – check it out.
