An Open Letter to The Mars Company

sharing size

Dear Mars Company,

The other day while traveling to the grocery store with my mom, I came across a 3.7oz package of M&Ms. Splashed atop the upper right corner of the package was a bold proclamation. You have taken it upon yourselves to declare this 3.7oz package a “sharing” size. Now, I understand that you, a faceless corporation driven by numbers, may think that 3.7oz is perfect for sharing but I am here to tell you that you are wrong. Who am I sharing with? An infant? The only entity I am likely to share 3.7oz of chocolate with is me. A more appropriate size to slap with that label would be 12oz or more. Your consideration for my caloric intake is unnecessary and frankly, unwanted. You’re not the boss of me. I will eat however many M&Ms as I see fit and no, I am not sharing.

Love and smiles,

Alexis

Thank You Thursday {8}

I understand that today is Friday and not Thursday. Yesterday, I had a doctor’ s appointment, which was very tiring. Hopefully, I will not be late again. Thank you for your understanding and enjoy this week’s thankful shoutouts.

Grotto
Thank you for being so accommodating. Your customer service is incredible, as is your food. The bruschetta was incredible and the four cheese pizza is the best pizza I’ve ever had ever (parmesan cream, mozzarella, fontina, parmesan & goat cheese). What the hell even? On top of the food and atmosphere (which was as stupendous as the delectable om noms), I had the Elderflower Cocktail, which is one of your specialties. It was rather strong for me, but it was delicious all the same.

Prophets and Outlaws
I am so glad that we ended up at Grotto. I really enjoyed your live cover of ‘Valerie’. Of course, your music on the whole is mind blowing. I will definitely be seeing you again.

For those of you who have not heard of Prophets and Outlaws, you can check them out here. They sound just as good record it as they do live, and you can check out four of their songs on their website.

I’m very glad and that everyone enjoyed the rocks that we left up at the office. Thank you for saving the plate for us. We will be doing that again and leaving them at another location for more people to enjoy. I also really appreciate how you always greet us with a smile. I hope you have a wonderful year.

Spoons
Although this sign on your front is slightly confusing, and you may have possibly been closed whenever we went inside, you still happily rang up the brownies that we purchased. They were delicious, by the way. Next time, I will probably try the pie.

You made both myself and my mom smile yesterday, whether you realize that or not. You have such a happy face and sweet demeanor. Thank you for your sweetness and the food!

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Love and smiles,
