Look carefully...at the seemingly small moments...in the constant shaping of souls.- Neal A.Maxwell

belly flops
     A while ago 16 year old B bought 2 small bags of Belly Flops (irregular Jelly Belly jelly beans) from the Dollar Store.  Unfortunately he did not notice that the bags contained a mix of regular and weird flavors.  The weird can be downright disturbing - rotten egg, ear wax and worse.  B realized his error when he started eating the first bag.  Most of the contents of that bag ended up in the garbage.  The second bag ended up in the cupboard until tonight when my husband  D opened it.  A few beans in and he was done.  B and 20 year old C started a competion.  They would each pick a bean for the other person and see who could swallow first (or spit out last).  B got a rotten egg and was 100%, completely done with the game.  C asked D to play - he declined.  I said I would play if I got to pick my own beans.  My first was pear - quite tasty.  C picked a bean and then brought me the plate so I could select my second.  There was one white bean on the plate, nothing else.  It was marshmallow.  C was hoping it was rotten egg.  We decided  that to make it fair we would cut each bean in half so we would both get the same thing.  The plus side of this was you could smell a hint of what you were getting before tasting.  We took turns selecting which bean to cut.  Cotton candy.  Toasted Marshmallow.  Blue Raspberry.  Chocolate.  And then...rotten egg.  Yuck and double yuck, by smell even before taste.  A few beans later C's girlfriend texted and C quit the "game" to respond to her.  I was curious about the remaining beans so I cut into another one and sniffed.  B said he would not taste anymore but he would sniff them with me.  There was one ominous looking one that C and I had been avoiding.  I cut into it and B and I both gave a sniff.  It was absolutely, positively horrid.  We had D and C smell.  They agreed it was BAD.  B offered C a dollar to eat it.  No go.  B kept upping the ante until it got to he would let C choose who he would ask to Homecoming.  No dice.  C said he really wanted to eat it just to prove we were all wimps and he wasn't but even that was not incentive enough.  
     We were laughing from the moment D opened the bag until well after the last bean was cut. One dollar well spent.  Though if we never have another jelly bean again it just may be too soon.

If you get them you need to know the toothpaste ones will make brushing your teeth a little off-putting that night :) At least according to B and C, I refused to try one for that very possibility.
