So I'm sitting here, minding my own business, sulking and moping at being HUNDREDS of miles away from my husband on TODAY - our THREE YEAR ANNIVERSARY, when a spritely old man comes in carrying a vase full of gorgeous roses. 

I sign and he says "I couldn't carry both up.  I'll be back with the other one."  He ducks back on the elevator and I think to myself:  other one?

I call Harry to thank him and ask him about - "the other one." 

"Just wait," he says.  "Call me back."

As soon as I hang up the little guy appears and startles me by plopping down a HUGE basket of candy.  I'm a little ashamed to admit, but I'm too busy poking around the contents to properly thank him for cheering up my otherwise dreary day. 

The basket contents, for your drooling pleasure:  Whatchamacalits, Snickers, York Peppermint patties, Oreos, Assorted Chocolates, Almond Joy, Mounds, Smores, Three Muskateers, Twix, M&M's, M&M's peanut, Baby Ruth, Rollos, Hershey's, Whoppers, Nips, 5th Avenue, Kit Kats, and - brace yourself - Chocolate Covered Potato Chips.

I'm in shock.

Or a diabetic coma. 

Either way - I'm happy!

I'm picturing you like Homer Simpson having a donut moment with the drool coming out the side of his mouth. Mmmmmm, Doooooo-nuuuuuts.

Happy Anniversary. Hairy is the sweetest.

Happy Anniversary!!!

On a personal note:  DAMN IT ALL TO HELL!  They sell chocolate covered potato chips everywhere EXCEPT Wisconsin.  I love those things, and I can't find them anywhere.

I haven't found any in Utah, either :(

Well, they have guacamole flavored Dorritos in Utah (yum).  In Minnesota, they've got ketchup flavored potato chips (more yum).  In Wisconsin, we've got nothing but cheese-flavored things.  Boooooring.

Metatron: For their insolence God decreed that neither Loki nor Bartleby would ever be allowed back into Paradise.
Bethany: Were they sent to Hell?
Metatron: Worse . . . Wisconsin . . . for the entire span of human history.

Oooh, ketchup flavored sounds good.
