Death by Smarties

The number one rule for buying Halloween candy is this: Do not buy candy you like to eat.

By following this rule, a 5 pound bag of candy becomes much, much less tempting and the chance of gorging oneself, almost non-existent.

This year I broke the number one rule for buying Halloween candy. Maybe my title "Death by Smarties" is a little bit of an exaggeration, but "Sugar-Induced Headache by Smarties" just isn't very catchy.

We already had a candy discussion last night, but I did want to tell you that last weekend Keith & I got to watch a whole hour of Jim Gaffigan on Comedy Central (yay for Cable TV!) :) It was hilarious. The hot pocket bit was on there, and there were a bunch of other things, too. I finally got what you meant about audience "asides," and it is so funny when he says in that whispery voice "This guy's weird. Why is he so pale?" :) Hahaha!
