While at a store the other day, the cashier suddenly told me, “I really want a Snickers bar, but I hate peanuts.”
I blinked and said, “What?” (I wasn’t buying any Snickers.)
She said, “No, I really hate peanuts, but I want a Snickers bar!” As if I had accused her of liking peanuts or not liking Snickers.
“Uh, well maybe you could get some other kind of candy…” I suggested.
She gave me a disgusted look, so I took my purchase and left.
Of course, she was being silly, but I can’t help wondering: is there some kind of candy bar that’s like Snickers, but peanut-free?
