I was busting a move through the local Kroger the other day and noticed that Halloween candy was on clearance. I sauntered over to check out some Reece's Peanut Butter Cups, not too bad, I thought.
I didn't purchase them.
I then walked another aisle over. Christmas candy is out. Same bag of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups was a solid dollar more expensive because it was red and green and not black and orange.
I am my father's daughter. Can't fool me.
By the way, how is it that Christmas items are out? The American retail industry is apparently planning to start skipping Thanksgiving any year now. I'm just buckling down, waiting to not see it on my calendar in 2011. I guess we have nothing left to be thankful for (some could insert an Obama joke here)? Not even clearance aisle halloween candy.
It's a damn shame.
