    #710 Stupid sidewalk!

  2. PJ says:

    #709 Because they are really Coconut Joys and that Almond Joy thing is a big fake-out and your brain is saying, “Oh joy! Almonds!” and then it gets mostly coconut and one lousy little almond per piece and the coconut is good, but the brain was all about the almond. Call is Coconut Joy and then the brain would get all, “Yippee! There’s an almond, too! Oh joy!”

    #711 And pink tile bathrooms with gray or black trim. Shudder!

    Who knew PJ had given such serious thought to Almond Joys?

    I didn’t know Almond Joys got a bad rap. I myself prefer their almond free, dark chocolate covered cousin, the MOUNDS bar.

    I love very well done pink and black tiled bathrooms that are very retro.

    If a guy I was dating liked Almond Joys, Mounds, or Coconut Joys, I’d break up with him.
