The gods must not be all that upset...

Along about 3:45 this afternoon, I experienced a miracle not unlike that of the loaves and fishes.



"I just found peanut M&Ms in my desk!" I announced triumphantly to no one in particular.

"Woooow," came the reply from Mindy next door.

A few minutes later:

"They don't even taste old!" I said. "They don't really taste all that fresh either..."

Mindy darkened my door frame, holding a small box in one hand and two bright green foil-wrapped somethings in the other. "I'll trade you a box of conversation hearts and two marshmallow bunnies for two M&Ms," she said.

"I'll give you four M&Ms if you give me the hearts and keep the bunnies," I told her. "I hate marshmallows in all their permutations."

"I hate 'em like this," Mindy agreed, eyeing her bunnies disdainfully. "I love them in Rice Crispy treats, though."

"Not me!" I said as I munched another M&M. As I was searching the package for a blue one, a light dawned in Mindy's eyes.

"Hey! Let's take a couple of jars of this community service peanut butter and open 'em up. We could jam the marshmallow bunnies down in the middle and reseal 'em."

"Ooooh! Good idea!"

"We'll use creamy peanut butter. That way it'll be easier to get the bunnies down in there."

"Yeah!" I was getting excited about the idea. "We should microwave the peanut butter first."

"Yes!"

"And freeze the bunnies!" I said.

"Oh, good! Then we can push the bunnies down into the hot peanut butter and it will be perfect!"

"Yeah," I agreed. "We should put them in ears first."

"True," she said. "That would be a lot easier."

"Yeah, little bunnies headfirst into the peanut butter, nothing but their feet sticking out of the top. It's like a Marshmallow Mafia hit."



We ate some more M&Ms. Then we went back to work.

That is just awesome. But don't you think that the bunnies would have melted going into the hot peanut butter? I mean I am just saying....

There you go again....making me laugh until my sides hurt.

Glad I'm just made of dust....marshmellow bunnies don't do well in your neck of the woods.

Then Rose ate the bunnies and ruined our fun. ~sighs~

Today we worked on opening up Rach's sinuses.

"Today we worked on opening up Rach's sinuses."

Did you need pliers?

Rev Kim said...

Y'all have way more fun at your office than I have in mine.

ElastiGirl said...

did the warm pb help with the sinuses? y'all are my favorite kind of funny - sick and twisted...

Sue said...

Your workplace is way more fun than mine. LOL!

Deb said...

You could melt them and make colored marshmellow rice krispie treats! Or... you could melt them in the microwave and watch them poof then explode.

Just sayin
Deb

Who would TOTALLY eat the M&Ms and not share them.

annie said...

Frankly, I don't believe there is ever much work going on in that office. You two are incorrigible!

Buy Rach some of those Kleenexes with Vick's, they will open her sinuses.
