Alice knows what she wants.
She doesn’t fool around. When she enters See’s Candies in Santa Barbara, she is on a mission.
She is like James Bond, hot on the trail of secret confection.
It’s not a game. She’s dead serious. Hellbent on getting several cups of sugary goodness. Quickly and efficiently.
It’s the milk chocolate peanut clusters, it’s the brittle, it’s all things chocolate and all things crunchy and caramel. Her little white bag fills up in no time. She’s at the register faster than the cashier. She’s faster than a speeding truffle.
In a blink of an eye, the candies are already in her mouth and making their way into her belly and easing through the digestive process.
She’s a candy buyer after my own heart.
That’s why I love her.
Alice. She knows what she wants.
