A few years ago, BFF went to the local drugstore to purchase toiletries.

When he returned home, he said he’d bought some “presents” for the 5 nieces and nephews we had at the time.

With a grin, he asked me to guess what he got.

“PEZ dispensers.”

His grin disappeared and he stared at me, mouth agape . . . “How did you guess that?”

“I don’t know.  The Universe must have told me.”

“No, really.  How did you guess?  We’ve never bought them PEZ dispensers before.  Of all the things I could have bought . . . ”

“I don’t know how I knew.  I just knew.”

Intuition . . . sometimes you just KNOW.

Accept that as the gift that it is.

And now a few Fun Facts about PEZ:

PEZ Dispenser (Fair Use)

* PEZ was first introduced in 1927 in Vienna, Austria as a breath mint for adults!

* The word PEZ was created using the first, middle and last letter in the German word for peppermint PfeffErminZ.

* The first PEZ dispensers were known as regulars and did not have character heads on them. They were marketed to adults as an alternative to smoking.  Original dispensers have sold for more than $100 each!

* When making a single piece of PEZ Candy it takes 3,000 pounds of pressure to compress the sugar into the familiar brick shape of a PEZ Candy!

* In 2007, PEZ celebrated 80 years as a brand and continues to introduce new character dispensers all the time!

No rules.  Just write!
