So much to do tonight, I just couldn't help the procrastination kicking in...
Craving something sweet, I stuck my hand in one of our big bags o' leftover Halloween candy and came up with a fun size Milky Way bar. Not my first choice, but a satisfactory candy-roulette result so I flipped it over in my paw to begin to tear open the wrapper when an email address caught my eye.
Specifically, the exhortation:
Questions or Comments? call 1-800-551-9985 or email us at AskMilkyway@MMMars.com
My candy now has an email address? What would a candy bar say if it could talk? What would a candy bar write if it could email? What the hell would I ask my candy bar?
Inspiration greeted me on the other side of the wrapper:
MAY CONTAIN PEANUTSSo I responded to my muse and sent the following off as my introductory email to my (now fully digested) Milky Way:
Love your Milky Way candy bars. I was looking at the wrapper of a fun-size bar I got for Halloween and noticed it says "MAY CONTAIN PEANUTS"
Who decides whether a Milky Way bar will contain peanuts or not? Wouldn't including peanuts make it a Snickers?
Will let you know what comes back my way. It's already been to long for the old auto-reply trick, but I think the email/call centers in Bangladesh are running at full steam at this hour.
