I suspect his wife purchased the Caramilk bars knowing full well what would happen to them. My wife always buys a good amount of candy for Halloween knowing we will have candy left over. She buys the kinds of candy I like knowing there will be extra.
Kit Kats & Reese's Cups to hand out & no one rang the doorbell . We're having a resurgence of Covid-19 in upstate NY that must have kept the kids at home. After 8:00 pm I heated-up a frozen pizza & gorged myself .
We put bags of tiny Hershey bars on a stool. All 40 of the bags slowly disappeared. We had Pizza Hut take out. There was a big croud there. I liked this candy delivery system.
I put out Reese's, Snickers, Kit-Kat, Starbursts, etc. so now I have a couple of bags of candy leftover.
I do the same in the Winter months when I am off work. I treat myself 365 days a year with FOUR homemade cinnamon buns for breakfast/and German plum cake for dessert. Make them from scratch myself. Only have two addictions....food and of course COINS. Actually, I got rained out, so I am baking up 90 cinnamon buns this afternoon.
PS: I wore size 30 jeans in highschool....same today.
Wow! That's incredible. You must lead quite the active lifestyle to continuously consume, and burn, a large number of calories. Those look sooo tasty!
Ended up getting some caramel chocolate chunk cookies instead of Caramilk and enjoyed a few with a nice glass of fresh hot coffee to celebrate Halloween and usher in the start of the great month of November.
Here's a more fitting Emperor:

I am in lawncare, so I walk about 300 K a week/ esp. in Summer months when I go 95+ hrs a week. This month I will be working govt. hrs/ since it will be dark at 5:00PM. I find working only 10 hrs X 7 is child'splay.....
Well, at least I have spare time for fun activities.
That's inspiring. And 10 hours a day 7 days a week is much more than the usual 8 hours a day 5 days a week. I can learn a thing from that.
My theory is the opposite, your body loves to be worked hard, its a win win....you feel much better about yourself/ look great/ make lots of $$$ to spend on coins......and can eat whatever you crave.
