I read this little poem today from a crafting newsletter called "The Weekly Inkling," and it just made me laugh. From what I can gather, you put different colored M&M's in little acrylic test tubes to give away, and you send this poem along with the gift.
Each color is a different cure;
Of this fact, we're very sure.
When you're grouchy and a little mean,
We truly recommend the green.
For times when you are down,
The very best choice will be the brown.
Orange's oh so special coating.
Will help minimize any bloating.
If you have an ache in your head,
This will surely be cured by the red.
Need something to help you be mellow?
Take a dose of the yellow.
If anxiety feelings overcome you,
Just eat a hefty handful of blue.
And, if your day comes unglued,
Just eat the whole tube!
My apologies, as the author's name was not included in this newsletter, but here's a link to "Splitcoast Stampers" that publishes the newsletter:
This week I couldn't resist the pretty red, pink, hot pink and white M&M's packaged for Valentine's Day. Not only did I buy the regular M&M's, I had to have the peanut butter ones, too. They are sitting in plain sight on my table, but I'm trying to pretend that I don't know where they are. I'm sure I'll treat myself to a few before the night is over, though.
Here are my ideas about inserting some extra lines for the pink ones and the white ones:
If you're up all night and can't sleep a wink,
Get up and choose that pretty pink.
You try to resist them, but it's a fight,
So go ahead and grab the white.
Let me hear your lines for the pinks and whites, if you're so inclined...
