I was pushing my shopping cart down the candy aisle today when I spotted my dentist's receptionist up ahead studying what to buy. She didn't see me, and as I pushed my cart behind her, she reached into the shelf and pulled out a 1 lb. bag of M&M's.
"Oh, Carol, you are so busted," I said, passing without so much as looking at her.
Carol immediately spun around and started stammering, "They're not for me!" Then muttered something about "they're for a recipe of trail mix" she had seen, tossing the M&M's into my cart, thinking that'd make me complicit.
As I returned the candy to her cart I said, "I'm still going to tell Doc!"
If only Bush, or Cheney, or Rice, or Gonzales, congress or America could experience guilt and take some action to alleviate it.
