Glass Half Full?

At the beginning of the month, I bought a regular sized bag of Brach's candy corn because it tastes delicious I like to decorate with it. I filled my glass pumpkin with the candy corn and placed it on my kitchen counter next to the sink, where I spend many hours each day lovingly hand washing sippy cups.

Does something seem odd about this picture?

I'm trying to be a positive person, so I am telling myself that this is a "glass half full" situation, as opposed to a "crap, I ate all the candy" "glass half empty" situation.

I would very much appreciate it if you would validate my viewpoint today.

Thank you. That is all.

  7. Haha, half full! I always eat so much candy corn in one sitting that I get sick to my stomach. I never know when to stop.

  8. Hey...did you sneak into my house and take that picture, Amanda? I bought a bag of that stuff...er...for my grandson. I think he must be cutting school and coming over while I'm gone to eat it. Or that's my story and I'm sticking to it! Happy week!...hugs...Debbie

  9. Too funny! That is why I put my candy corn in bottles...it takes a lot more effort to open up those bottles than it does to dig into a candy jar:)

  10. I feel your pain. I just got back from DC today and all my candy corn is gone. Must have been the candy corn bandit.

  13. Melissa's comment had me literally laughing out loud!

    She's sooo right, look at how many dishes you've done! You outta be PROUD of that half empty pumpkin. Maybe I need one of those next to my sink and next to the washing machine...

  14. I think they disintegrate in the sun, that is probably what happened. I guess you could put clear tape on the lid to make it harder to open...but now that wouldn't be any fun.

  15. Well, you still DO have half the candy and it still DOES look pretty!

  16. Oh I agree! Definitely half full!! And a side note here...I hate candy corn...so mine would be full and used for decoration only. Ha!

  17. Half full for sure! I left mine empty this year because I know I would eat it until it was EMPTY! Enjoy washing your sippies today and your treats! ;)

  20. LOL LOL I vote for half full! And you are enjoying looking at it and devouring I mean tasting it! LOL

    I still like it! :-) And I love your sense of humor!

  21. It's okay. Live a little. You deserve it for washing all those sippy cups!

  22. Oh, honey. Not only is that a glass half full--it is SO MUCH FULLER than it would be at my house.

    I am not exaggerating when I tell you that I bought--and ate--FOUR bags of candy corn. When my jeans started getting too tight, I finally made myself stop. Not because I want to stop, but because I can't afford to buy all new clothes.

    And so I stopped. I stopped eating candy corn only when the fourth bag was empty. The only thing I had enough will power to STOP was buying more bags. I am hopeless when it comes to this particular treat!

  23. I am laughing because I have the exact same jar near my sink and the exact same thing happened except mine is nearly empty and I have no children to help to empty it. I adore candy corn and will be glad when it is out of the stores because I have no will power when it is around!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Half full, definitely. The candy corn this year seems to, er, evaporate especially quickly!

I love to hear your feedback! Please feel free to leave comments...just don't send me spam asking me to buy stuff off your website! I've got three kids and no money to purchase your magic weight-loss pill or bust enhancement, or whatever else you might be selling. Thanks, and I look forward to hearing from you! :)
