The Tale of the Lever

Once upon a time, three girls named SJ, D2, and Erachet ventured into a candy shop. There was candy everywhere - on the counters, on the shelves, along the walls...
SJ and D2 were excited by all the candy.
Erachet was too, but she was something else. She was curious. She walked over to the plastic containers lining the walls filled with m&ms. Each container had a different color of m&ms in it and, more importantly, each container had a big, red lever attached to it.
"Hmmm," wondered the ever-curious Erachet. "I wonder what would happen if I just...pulled...?"
She reached out and pulled on the lever attached to the container filled with red m&ms.

TAP TAP TAP TAP TAP TAP TAP TAP TAP!

Out fell scores and scores of m&ms onto the floor!

Uh oh!

Those gross m&ms from the floor cost Erachet $1.25.

And that, boys and girls, is why you should never pull levers if you don't know what they do, especially in candy shops.

The End.

I actually laughed out loud at this for a good fifteen seconds. :)

D2 - I like that.

I can't believe they made you PAY for those fallen m-&-m's! More than for a big bag of 'em at the drugstore!

Hope you're having fun!

:-) That was a good story. I liked it.

You're lucky that you only got 15 seconds worth of M&Ms.

3 lemons could have arrived, and all the candy jars could have emptied their contents.

Hello, five second rule!

I was staring at the m&ms in shock for way more than five seconds. :)
