This little girl that I know loves candy. She knows where it is in every store she goes to. Even if she has never been there before. It's like she has a sixth sense, or super powers. That's got to be it. This little Bit must have super human smell. And that scense of smell is specifically trained at detecting sweets.
One day we were at a Chevron filling up gas on our way down to California and I came out from taking a potty break to hear this little candy-holic squealing with delight. As I came around the corner this is what I saw. There she was running up and down the candy isle filling her arms with treats. I couldn't help but think she was acting as if she we on some game show. You know like the people they used to stick in the "money machine" and you would watch them frantically grab for bills.
She really wanted one of those nerds rope things. I helped her buy the Dots. They were gone in minutes. I don't know how she ate them so fast. I thought I would find them all spilled out all over the car. Nope...she ate them all...in minutes.
When she is at home she goes to the pantry, points to the door and goes uhnn. I think that means she wants something. So I open the door, and we play this game. I point to things she might like or can have and she goes uh-uh. I think that means no. So then we go to the fridge. Nothing in there looks good either.
I have a secret stash though that I try to hide from her. But if I get something yummy out, even if she is way upstairs. She knows. It's that super smell power she has. She tummy surfs down the steps in no time. Then she is standing there below me pulling at my shirt. I think she is developing another super power. It rarely expresses itself in humans. It is way more common for puppies to develop the super power of "puppy eye". But this little girl...her eyes are so big and pretty. And she is an expert at letting them get all filled up with tears.
She gets what she wants. But someday I think I'm going to have to sign her up for candy-holics anonymous.
