By the time I was 4, I was really curious,
Funny thing I don’t remember much
but the story I hear at every Christmas time …
My parents were in another room
when I had decided
to take a good look
at Christmas ornaments
I guess became curious
if they were as tasty as the candy canes.
I guess I figured at the age of 4 that if it is shaped like a candy cane then …
it must taste like a candy cane right?
All that did for me was get me
an instant emergency room visit!

So a word of advice:
Just because something looks the same,
it might not mean that it is.
