The Gummy Bear
“I’ve got something for you,” Randy says. He sneaks something small in my hand without looking at me. I look down. It’s a gummy bear. Flavor: white (pineapple). As Randy walks away with a pile of clothes I exclaim in surprise and pleasure and quickly throw the gummy bear in my mouth. It is so delicious. Sweet and fruity. I don’t stop working. I keep going, though my concentration is out of focus. I push clothes around as I chew that wonderful, white gummy bear. Today has been so stressful, so exhausting. But for the next seven seconds I am happy and nothing at all is bad in my life. All my problems are solved. Thank you white gummy bear. Thank you Randy.
