1.) One of the kids at the institute mentioned that he thought his head was small, so I did what I always do in this situation, I pulled out my little measuring tape that I always carry with me and measured it. And then started measuring other people's heads. And then started the official Walnut Institute Head Competition. Results will be posted on my office wall. I seem to have found a group who will humor me.
2.) I have snacks for sale in my office so I regularly get into conversations about favorite candy bars. Do you know what people love? A plain Hershey bar. Okay, sure, it's chocolate. I certainly can't fault that. But you're really going to choose a plain Hershey bar over peanut M&Ms? Or a Twix? Or peanut butter cups? Or even a Hershey bar with almonds? It's mystifying.
3.) The resale of snacks to college students has led to some interesting currency coming into our cash drawer. So far I have received coins from Canada and Fiji and a half of a dollar bill. I wonder if they thought it would count as 50 cents. And as far as the coins go, I'll just start up a collection of money from Commonwealth nations. Anything with the Queen's head on it is good enough for me.
