small pleasures

Sometimes, if you are pregnant on Halloween, and you have eaten some really garlicy chicken for lunch that you can still taste 3 hours later when your stomach takes a nasty turn, you might start rumaging through the kitchen for something to take the taste away. Then you might spot a bag of Dum Dum suckers stuck up in the pantry for trick or treaters. And, once you have the bag open, you could find something you've never tried before, something new...a *pink lemonade* flavored Dum Dum. And it might taste just right, it might really taste good to that queesy stomach, so good that you might dig through the rest of the bag to claim the rest for yourself and feel a bit disappointed that there are only two other pink lemonade Dum Dums in the bag. The next day, when your stomach turns again, you might find yourself so desperate for more pink lemonade Dum Dums that you might start peeking in the wrappers of the "mystery flavor" Dum Dums, hoping that you might get lucky and uncover a pink lemonade. You might even feel excited when you uncover a pink one, triumphantly unwrap it and pop it in your mouth only to find that it is not pink lemonade. It is watermelon. Which is not the same. Not the same at all.

Then, you might, just out of curiosity, search the internet to see if it is possible to order Dum Dums in only one flavor, specifically pink lemonade flavor. And you might be quite intrigued to find out that such a possiblity indeed exists.
