HOLIDAY CHOCOLATE….skippy reports that yesterday

HOLIDAY CHOCOLATE….skippy reports that yesterday he ate the last piece of candy left over from a holiday box of See’s chocolates.

Huh? By the second week of January he still hadn’t finished up one lousy box? Mine was polished off by….hold on a second….December 27. In fact, a detailed mathematical modeling of skippy’s chocolate eating habits, assuming that mrs. s didn’t eat any, produces an average chocolate eating velocity of approximately 1.6 pieces per day.

Yikes! What kind of a fiendishly disciplined monster is this man?
