Dad Story: Hershey Kisses

March 3, 2006 at 2:00 pm 5 comments

One of the great joys of my life is my father and the humour he invariably brings to my days.  Below is one of such story that made me laugh.

Dad has an unpredictable sweet tooth.  Sometimes he seems indifferent to sweets- oblivious of the temptations they offer.  Then sometimes, their siren call reaches him and he will gobble down the treats while lying in bed and reading the daily paper.

One day Dad was enjoying a bag of Hershey Kisses in that manner.  The sugar rush apparently wasn’t very strong as Dad fell asleep. When he woke up, he immediately started gagging and making a big ruckus.  He had brown streaks all over his arms and chest.  He thought someone (or something) pooped on the bed and he rolled in it!

Turns out, he just fell asleep on top of that bag of Hershey Kisses and they melted on him!

On a side note, a few years ago, my husband woke up to find a little present from our beagle on the adjacent pillow.  My husband was, understandably, livid.  He found me to be less than supportive.  As he relayed the story to me, I could not stop laughing. 

Before I could even choke out my thought, my husband snapped, “YES!  I’m SURE it’s NOT Hershey Kisses!”

    It could be both! I can recall at least two occassions where I find myself laughing and gagging at the same time:

    1) The Diarrhea/Bedsheet/Breakfast scene in Trainspotting.

    2) The Human Fat/Fence scene in Fight Club
