M&Ms Make Me Happy

October 13 – National M&M Day

“It melts in your mouth, not in your hands” is a slogan I grew up with for those wonderful little bundles of chocolate covered by a hard shell. In my youth, they only came in red, yellow, green, blue, orange, and brown. Now, you can find them in pastel colors for Easter and spring or just bags of red and green for the holidays.

I had a habit of separating them into their color families and eating one color at a time.

Then, in college, I was a red M&M in a children’s touring company.

Created in 1941, we have enjoyed M&Ms for more than 75 years.

Hi, I’m Becky. (Ok, Rebecca, but I am rarely addressed that way.) I am a writer and a musician with a tendency to enjoy a variety of crafting opportunities. I retired from teaching in 2014 after spending most of my 34 year career teaching in the high school English department: various levels of English (mostly literature and writing), creative writing, public speaking, and theater (acting, directing, and technical theater). As a teacher, I held the philosophy that I wouldn’t give any writing assignment that I personally wouldn’t or couldn’t do. That philosophy strengthened and broadened my own writing.

Thanks for reading.
