My Mom once told me that she was in line at Sees Candy behind a woman that asked for her pound-and-a-half of candy to be put in a bag rather than a box.
When my Mom asked her why, she sheepishly answered that it was because that way she couldn't see how many she'd eaten. There weren't those horrible little empty spaces reminding her each time she ate another.
I used to think that was pretty silly.
That is, until we finished off a pound-and-a-half of Sees on our own in the past week.
Remind me to get a bag next time instead of a box. Those little empty spaces are haunting me.
