As Pastors Lazy Dad and I frequently get gifts.
Most of them being food gifts. Things like homemade pies, cookies, banana breads and other tasty baked goods.
Oh, and then there’s that one dear, dear darling of a woman that makes me olive dip that is pretty pert near close to being to die for.
NOW do you know why my thighs jiggle people?
And I can’t lose those pesky 25 pounds??
And I wear stretchy pants a lot???
Nobody’s bringing us leafy greens, broccoli and tofu. Nope. They’re not.
But I guess I’m okay with that.
But my thighs aren’t.
And neither are my love cushions. (They’ve gone past handles to full blown cushions a long time ago.)
Anyway, on Saturday we had lunch with two guys from our church. It was a fabulous lunch. And what better to talk about over a fabulous lunch than other fabulous food, right? Right.
So one of the guys mentions his affinity for candy. One item he particularly liked being Peanut M&M’s. Which just so also happens to be one of Lazy Dad’s TOP favorite treats.
A short story ensued about how our friend once found a knock-off brand of Peanut M&M’s at a discount grocery store and how they weren’t “quite” as good, but could get you by in a pinch.
Our food confessional about other fabulous foods we love continued for a while before we moved onto other subjects and before we knew it lunch was over and we were headed home.
Sunday rolls around. Easter Sunday to be exact. And at the end of the service the guy with the sweet tooth walks up to me and hands me these…
And he lovingly said to me…
“Tell Pastor this is his Easter gift — welfare M&M’s.”
To which I lovingly replied, “Wow! I’ve never seen ghetto M&M’s before! This is awesome!” Followed by lots of laughter and running around the church to show people the ghetto M&M’s.
Many people laughed over the Easter gift which we also referred to as “white trash M&M’s.” — Which I now think is my favorite name for them, by the way.
And homeboy is right. They aren’t as good as for real Peanut M&M’s, but they can get you by in a pinch.
Or if you’re ever feeling a bit white trash I guess.
What did YOU get for Easter? Bet’cha can’t top our white trash M&M’s!!
