Interior Decorating

At the front entry of my house, is a table with a vase filled with pretty flowers - fake ones.  Along with the flowers, are some glass pebbles.  That's the way it's been for the last four years.  Today, I found a slight change.

As I walked past the vase, I had to look twice.  There were some brown oval-shaped things that didn't quite look like the glass pebbles that I was accustomed to seeing.  I reached in and pulled one out.  I sniffed it.  Chocolate?

There was only one individual in the house that would come up with that kind of creativity:  my son.

"Bubba!" I called.

He meandered over to me.

"What's this?" I asked holding up the oval chocolate.

"That?"  he said, acting all innocent.  "Oh, that's a chocolate covered peanut."

"And what exactly is a chocolate covered peanut doing in this vase?"

"Well, the plain clear glass things in there are kind of boring.  It needs a little color."

I see.  Apparently it needs a little flavor, too!
