We finished reading Because of Winn-Dixie last night. In it there is a candy, the Littmus Lozenge, that tastes sweet and like sadness at the same time. People can't stop eating it.
I'm thinking about that candy today.
(Incidentally, if you haven't read Kate DiCamillo, read literally everything she's ever done. She has the rare stuff. Every one of her books is a Littmus Lozenge.)
