I often kiss you when there’s no one else around

Franny is fundraising for her trip to Japan next spring. I came home and saw two giant boxes of candy bars on the table.

“How’s it going? How much are these going for?” I asked.

“Two dollars, and I’ve sold a bunch already,” she said.

“How much?”

“I’ve already made $33!”

“Hmm, okay.” I decided to let that one go. “I have advice for you. As we say in the drug dealing business, ‘Don’t get high on your own supply.”

“Okay, Mom,” she said, laughing.

Later I was in my room and I heard her talking to P.

“I’m hungry, I really want to eat these candy bars,” Franny said.

“Don’t do it,” P. said.

“Yeah, it’s like Mom said earlier: Don’t drink your drugs.”

    Gotta ask: if they are 2 each, how’d she end up with an odd number?

    If you’re going to use your own product, at least fucking snort it.

    Also, I will buy some of these crack-ish candy bars. I would like cocaine toffee, please.
