Reality Check: Candy Corn Edition

by stryson

This morning, I took a new pair of Halloween earrings off of their cardboard card from the store. The earrings are metal; they’re in the shape of candy corns, but they function as bells. They also are sparkly and have bows at the top.

I shook my head in bemusement when I noted a sticker on the card: “Not candy. Not edible. Do not eat.”

Really? I thought to myself. Who in the world would mistake these for something edible?
Sure enough, my sixth graders came in this morning, and one of them asked me if my earrings were real candy.
