So I’m at my friend’s place and her daughter is showing off her candy haul to me excitedly and explaining how much she got of each type of candy (including an ungodly number of Coffee Crisps, but if you’re going to get a lot of one type of fun-sized bar, you might as well get a good one) and when she gets to the lollipops I recoil in shock, because now they are making “fun-size” Tootsie Roll Pops.
I mean, seriously? Fun-sized lollipops? These things looked like little candy pellets on tiny sticks. These would not even take one lick to get to the centre. It would have been cute if it wasn’t so clearly a total destruction of my youth, which was far more awesome than any present childhood because the damn Tootsie Roll Pops were at least the right size.
Apropos of nothing, here is a Halloweeny video for everybody: the Pet Shop Boys with “Heart,” which has a Dracula in it. And get this: the Dracula is actually Ian McKellen, which I only learned very recently, and which explains why this Dracula is such a swinging dancer.
