Fast forward to this morning, when I found the missing bag of peanut M&M's in my closet, hidden under a sweatshirt. That's good, right? 2 pounds of melt-in-your-mouth-and-not-in-your-hand goodness, and they were mine. ALL MINE.
But wait - on the bag it said, Find An All Brown Bag and you could Win $100,000 Instantly! Well, that's nice. I mean, I could use some money. Except, as it turns out, the sweepstakes ended last September.
So here is my dilemma: do I open the bag of peanut M&M's, thereby risking the discovery that it contains only brown M&M's? Do I really want to find out that, for the past year, I've had $100,000 lurking in my closet, $100,000 that has now turned into a pumpkin, as it were? Or do I just throw out the unopened bag and NEVER KNOW?
Opinions in this household differ, so we're putting it to a vote here on the blog. To see, or not to see? That is the question.
