Isn’t that sweet.
Another photo from New York.
The Joes and I did a lot of walking around NYC during our trip last month and we inevitably ended up in Times Square, where there is an entire store devoted to M&M’s. Little Joe loves them, so we went in.
The whole thing was a rather shameless and unsettling display of M&M’s. No, I’m not talking about the candy. I’m talking about merchandising and materialism. But Little Joe was fascinated by it all, so we tried to be good sports about it.
The very first thing he said is that he wanted to get some peanut M&M’s for our housemate D who likes them, so we did. He also wanted to get some plain M&M’s for himself and he was mesmerized by the wide variety of colors that they had, way beyond the standard colors you find in a normal bag.
While he was trying to fill his bag with each and every one of the colors, I was looking at some of the wall displays, among which was the one shown in the above photo. I had mixed feelings about it. Couldn’t figure out whether it was shallow or profound.
