Earlier this year, the CEO decided that we should keep a bowl of candy on the front desk. Since they're inexpensive, we've been keeping the bowl filled with Jolly Ranchers. Personally, I think that these candies are gross, but they've prove quite popular with the very young and the very old.
Today, one of those very old residents came in...
Resident: Can I have a candy?
Resident; It's really very good candy.
Me:They do seem to be quite popular.
Resident: It's very sour.
Now I am very confused. Jolly Ranchers are many things - artificial-tasting, syrupy, vaguely fruity - but sour is not a word I would ever use to describe them. However, there is a green apple flavor, so I think that perhaps she's thinking of that one.
Me: You mean the green ones?
She then proceeds to pick out a handful of red candies and walks out.
