My daughter is writing a report on F Scott Fitzgerald for school. She read that he was eating a candy bar when he suddenly had a heart attack. My daughter was wondering if anyone knows what type of candy bar he was eating! Anyone know?
A Hersey bar according the the last paragraph here: http://www.findadeath.com/Deceased/F/F.Scott%20Fitzgerald/f.htm
Thanks! It’s funny the things that fascinate a ten-year-old!
If she switches to Nestle, now you’ll know why.
Replace “candy bar” with “Sheila Graham.”
That’s going to be a tricky one to put in a school report.
Especially in fourth grade!
I think it is interesting. I try to maitain the sense of wonder and curiosity that children have and so many adults loose along the way.
Are you at all curious about spelling?
My curiosity got loose once and I never was able to catch it.
A loose bit my sister once.
Or was it a moose?
Did she maitain her sense of wonder?
Replace Sheila Graham with Real Magi Hash.
I love F. Scott. I had no idea he died eating a candy bar though. And that’s one terrible tie he had in 1938. Sort of coincidentally I’m in the middle of a little known novella of his called May Day**.
How fitting; according to Eve, he died while he was going down.
