The world is crazy! 24 new cycles, Jim Parsons is leaving The Big Bang Theory and I'm supposed to burn my house down, to prove to the guy who made the bricks for it, that I don't like choices he has made.
Insanity aside, there is a little corner of the world where things are fine. In fact, tasty. We get free snacks here at Townsquare Media Amarillo, and it always does my heart and mind good, to find a "Fun Size" bag of M&M's up for grabs. I love chocolate. I'm an American, so that means I like sweet chocolate. And the things I would do, to have M&M's all to myself, would shock you, but we won't go there.

The M&M's bag in the picture is called "Fun Size" meaning, there aren't many in there, and you'll be headed to buy more soon. There is the normal size we all remember, and they have "KING'" size, that shows up around Halloween. Trick-or-Treaters never get chocolate from me because I keep them. I hoard the M&MS, Reese's, Milky Ways, Butterfingers, and Baby Ruth's. Oh, and those "fun size" Hershey bars? All mine.

If you're not having a good day and find not only are there M&M's in the break-room, but they are yours for the taking. I love this country. Making quick work of the five or six M&M's in that little bag can turn my whole day around. I love chocolate and I love tacos. Are there chocolate tacos?

Those individually wrapped Reese's Peanut Butter Cups? Absolutely heaven. It takes me more time to rip the foil off than it does to eat them. I know they aren't "good" for me, but I really don't care. Who wants to live to 100, without chocolate?

The idea that I can walk up to a bowl, full of M&M's and leave without paying for them, is one of life's miracles. Apple, Microsoft, and Google let you take your dog to work, as a perk. I love my dog, but he doesn't eat chocolate and I do.

If you are a supervisor or your own business, you just might stop that "I want a raise" talk, with a bag of M&M's. It's worked on me for years.
