Our governor does wrestle. Closest thing to a andal is the bad sound system Conseco fieldhouse. Kids Ivenz to done anything cute a i id near sobbing. A i got nothing write about a Well a dad offered a How a out Candy a a who a i said. A not the Sweet stuff indy. Write about that. You in to go a what Are you talking about Quot asked wondering if dad had tent a Little too much time on in shuffleboard court that week without wearing his hat at first i thought the Florida Sun had turned my dads brain into a Raisin. But then i figured Candy is As Good a topic As any. So. My first memory of Candy was walking into my grandfathers grocery store and getting whatever i wanted for free. Free kiddie nirvana you have never seen such a Glutton. This Only lasted until Iga built a store a half mile from my grandpas and put him out of the grocery business and ended my sugar pipeline. I still wont shop at Iga. Perhaps driven by this sudden demise of my supplier i turned to larceny to obtain Candy and Learned a harsh lesson. A few friends of my parents were sleeping Over one night and were still dozing when i tiptoed out of my room Early in the morning. On the Coffee table not a foot from the guest snoring Mouth was an open Box of Candy. I did no to know what kind. I did no to care. I knew it was Candy and i Shook like a wet Chihuahua with excitement. Like a 5-year-old Indiana Jones i grabbed the Box with one motion and ran chortling to the Kitchen where i could Sample my ill gotten sweets. I was Gyp Ped. Turned out to be Good a no plenty the worst Candy Ever put in a Box. I went to spit it out in a garbage can but realized my thievery would be discovered. I ran to the toilet and spit and spit and spit vainly trying to get Joe Follick the gasoline taste out of my Mouth. To this Day i shudder when i see that innocent looking Pink and purple Box filled with the Candy of the Devil. Dad would often bring me some Candy Back from his exotic trips to Dayton or Lima. One of my favourites was the French Chew. You can still find these in Cincinnati i think they made one huge Batch in 1965 and Are still trying to sell it off the Beauty of the French Chew was that not Only did it offer a highly concentrated dose of sugar with each bite but you actually were instructed to smack the rigid bar on any Handy object to break off a piece to Chew. What Genius designing a Candy bar that gave a kid a huge sugar Buzz and then provided an outlet for that potentially violent Energy my Candy driven Days Are Over but i was reminded of Candy a sorcery earlier this year when i took my two kids trick or treating. They were like a starved Wolf pack tearing at each others bag and snarling at strangers who did no to give them what they wanted. I was so proud. A Well dad. I did it. I wrote a column about a what Are you talking about a he asked As if i had told him i was his daughter. A Candy. You told me to write about a Candy that a a dumb i sighed. And vowed to buy dad a hat with a wide brim for Christmas this year. Joe Follick is Indianapolis Bureau chief for Thomson Indiana.
