I thought I was so clever, waiting until today to buy my robin's eggs (that delicious Easter candy of malt balls covered with chocolate). I had given up sugar for Lent, so didn't get them before Easter because I didn't need the temptation lying around, even though I did manage to stay away from the chocolate drawer and the frozen custard for six weeks.
I also didn't buy them before Easter because I am as cheap as they come and why would I pay full price if I could get them half price on the day after Easter?
Only I forgot something. I forgot that we are not in New York and here, people get up early and by 8:30 a.m., almost all the Easter candy was gone from Walgreen's.
