Maura picked out a candy bar today when we were at the hardware store getting stuff to start seeds. She chose well, a Milky Way bar. She was SO excited to have it, hopping up and down, giddy with delight. We got in to the car and she wanted it opened, so I opened it. Knowing full well that I would probably have to hose her and the car down by the time we got home.
But when we pulled in, I looked back and with surprise noticed her face was perfectly clean. Weird. Then Miriam said “She’s licking it like a popsicle!” and started laughing.
Sure enough, Maura was not eating the candy bar, she was just licking it. Which for some reason was the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time. I tried to tell her she could bite into it but she rejected that idea and kept licking it.
