Yesterday we took Willow to Monterey to see some jellies and seahorses. After we left the aquarium we walked down the road to this candy shop that has all sorts of single-wrapped candies in these old barrels. The rows of barrels go up and down the store, and there are shelves filled with all sorts of Pez and weird gummies and pop rocks. We turned Willow loose to get some candy, but she ended up falling for a big stuffed Hello Kitty, and decided to get that instead of candy. So I can be healthy, she said.
I found that a little alarming. Maybe they’re going overboard at school with all the health education.
