my m&m obsession
okay, no quilts in this post; it's time to reveal my m&m thing. possibly obsessive-compulsive, but I swear it's the only time I get this way (except for having to clean the house before going on vacation-- but everyone does that, right?)
Anyway, here goes. I've never told anyone before: I have this thing about the right way to eat m&ms. They have to be eaten in a certain order. First I eat all the brown ones -- just 'cause they're brown.
Then I figure out which color has the fewest and line the rest of them up so there are equal numbers of red, blue, yellow, green and orange. In this package, red had the fewest.
Then whatever's left gets "bundled" in little groups of 4, 3, or 2.And then I eat them, starting with the smallest groups.
I've tried to figure out why I developed this little peculiarity and I think originally it was a means of not cramming them all in my mouth at once... i.e. making them last longer than 60 seconds. By the way, I only eat one small package a week!
so now you know... will you still read my blog?
