Our school has a tetracycle program. Kids can bring in old wrappers from certain foods and we recycle them. I think we get money for it, but I haven’t a clue how it all words. All I know is a few kids bring in random trash and I have to put it in a bucket in the Teacher’s Room.
Well today, someone brought in a giant M&M bag. I mean a super huge bag. I’ve never seen such a big bag of M&Ms in my life. When I first realized how large it was, I thought to myself, ‘Wow, who eats that many M&Ms?’
Anyway, at bustime, I finally remembered the giant candy bag and grabbed it as I lined up my last bus group to walk down. Naturally, when they saw the enormous bag of M&Ms – empty or not – they started begging for candy.
Well the bag was empty. Not a single M&M for me or them. What’s a guy to do?
I opened up the bag wide and place it over the first sprout’s nose.
“Take a big whiff and you can smell the M&Ms,” I said.
With that, I gave each of them a turn to smell the sweetness.
It wasn’t nearly as tasty as eating some, but it provided lots of smiles and giggles.
