Ali or Liston*? Spring or Fall?

You know how when you have finished a bag of peanut M&Ms and you crinkle up the bag and stuff it in your pocket and then later you pull the bag out to throw it away and you find a few still in the bag that you missed? Those are the best ones! Those last few taste better than the whole rest of the bag.

The last few nice days of fall are the bonus M&Ms.

Spring is walking into the kitchen in the morning, bleary eyed, fumbling with Mr. Coffee, and finding a shiny new bag on the counter, left there for you the night before by your wife.

For sheer indulgence, you have to go with spring, but the best ones are fall.

*I remember all the kids on the playground asking each other, “Clay or Liston – who do you think is going to win? Who are YOU for?” Heated arguments broke out. Everyone had a a strong opinion. Except for me. I had no idea what they were talking about. The female half of my parental team strongly frowned upon boxing. And the Three Stooges. And the Trix Rabbit. OK, I can see Mom not liking The Sweet Science and Curly, Moe, and Larry – but the Rabbit?
