Pez Pusher: She Strikes Again
It happened around this time last year and she's back. This time with something even worse, Pez. Nobody can stop her. Her sisters tried to warn me but it was of no use. Once he had the dispenser in hand I couldn't wrench it away from him. He put four candies inside his dispenser and I promptly removed the rest.
An informant told me that he was caressing the dispenser as he examined the goods within. I watched him from afar and when he caught me glancing his way, he quickly hid the booty, slyly pretending to be doing something else. When he knew I was on to him, he ran off giggling.
Later on he asked, "Why do those candies look like medicine? Why don't you eat some too?" It hadn't occurred to me but they do look an awful lot like medication of some kind. Certainly another strike against them.
p.s. I had a thing for Pez dispensers as a child. I also probably had a thing for Pez. The package says "natural flavors." I must investigate
