Nutcracker Advent Day 5
You see, this was back in the days of the nutcracker famine, and we had to hunt high and low for anything nutcracker-themed.
This particular tin had chocolate nutcrackers in it. Milk chocolate.
And I was allergic to milk. (Still am, by the way, but it was much worse back then.) And since I have a mother who loves chocolate, she ate them. Talk about a traumatic event in one's childhood!
She claims that she got me a bag of life savers to make up for my loss, but I don't remember them. I think she's just trying to salve her conscious over the fact that she stole candy from her daughter. (Let's not talk about the fact that I don't even like chocolate. I'm conveniently forgetting that.)
What's in it now? Well, it's not candy, and it's not baby clothes, but a tiny bag with a ladybug on it and tongue twisters inside. Fun.
