somebody notices

i was eating a box of green apple heads. i'm not really a candy person, but it's that time before pesach when there is no food in the house, and you have absolutely nothing to eat.

so anyway, i'm eating the apple heads, and i noticed a funny taste. it wouldn't have been polite to spit them out into my hand (i had three in my mouth) so rolled them around on my tongue...there was a red hot in my appleheads! i would have noticed if it had been red, so it must have been coated with green. but there was no mistaking that taste. i've never like hot tamales, red hots, or fireballs, even as a kid, but i was i public, so i choked it down.

later i was thinking about it. perhaps in the factory something went wrong. and something ended up in the wrong box. and the worker was just like "oh what the heck, it's green, no one will know" but i knew. the second it hit my tongue i knew.

life is like that sometimes. there are ppl that walk the walk, talk the talk, and dress the way they're supposed to. but they don't quite fit in. they're a red hot in a box of appleheads. but someone will know. ppl can tell

the angels of the apple heads must really be angry with an impostor among them.

That was a funny comment childish, after reading the other post with the other comment.
