Swedish Fish Stick

Swedish fish stick everywhere. In your teeth, in the bag, on the back of your car seat, but most importantly, in the vending machine.

The sticky aquatic sweets stayed in that vending machine like no other unwilling candy I have ever seen. There I was wacking the machine with my fists, attempting to shake the collossus with my bare hands, when a very, very, very, kind young lady came along and put 75 more cents into the unwilling monster. That was it--like the fat kid in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the candy slid right out with a bit of pressure--with another in tow.

So there I was, my candy in hand, and she just walks away. I say that it is hers, but she gives it to me without a thought. So I am stuck with both gummy treats, a gift from a compassionate passerby.

Just remember: There are nice people that can help in a sticky situation.

I like this very bizarre entry, Amanda!
