Just As I Thought

As if you needed more evidence

Maura sent out a bag of SweeTart Jelly Beans with my Mom last week. Naturally, I have begun to segregate them by flavor, so that I can eat them in the correct order (least favorite to most favorite).

I don’t know why, but I compulsively do this with candy all the time. I am either some kind of confectionery racist, or I have a particularly bizarre form of obsessive compulsive disorder.

  • I have begun to segregate them by flavor, so that I can eat them in the correct order (least favorite to most favorite).

    Whew…I’m glad I’m not the only one that does this.

    Thanks.

  • Or perhaps you just want to give credit where credit is due.
    I do this almost every time I eat. I take most of the meal deciding which food (i.e. the potatos, the steak or the carrots) I like the best, then save one bite for last. Thus, I can end on a high note.
    However, don’t underestimate the power of unity. Mixing them all together can make a whole new, quite wonderful taste. Imagine seggregating your trail mix.
    But whatever makes you happy.

  • Huh, like Tim, I’m glad to discover that I’m not the only one who does this. I was thinking about it the other day when we had a bunch of Jolly Ranchers at the office. I actually picked out the Watermelon, apple and the blue ones (don’t remember the flavor) and ate the apples first, then the blue ones, then the watermelon (my fave), thus ending on the “high note”! What a neurotic society we live in! Hahaha!
