I have a bad habit of seeking chocolate in the the midst of a stressful day.
Today someone had placed Peanut M & M's, fun size bags, in the chocolate secret stash location.
While no one was looking (as is my usual modus operandi), I grabbed three bags and quickly retreated back to the bat cave (my office).
I opened Bag #1 and emptied the contents on to a paper towel.
There were only six M & M's!
Honestly, this was the first time I had ever counted.
I opened Bag #2; there were seven.
Bag #3 (you guessed it) had eight!
I consumed the 21 Peanut M & M's quickly.
I couldn't help but ponder the following:
Would a fourth bag have had nine, five or one of the previously mentioned amounts?
I'll let you know of any additional research on this topic in the future.
Also, it was a sobering reminder that not all fun bags are created equal.
