We have a weird working relationship.

I came to work one day and there was a little bag of gummy bears on my desk.
Well, at one point the bag contained an assortment of gummy something, but they'd melted into an amorphous blob. I suspected my boss. She has a weird sense of humor sometimes.

Today I asked her about it.

"Hey boss," I said, "Did you leave these here for me?"

"Oh yes," she said, "You're so sweet and I know you love candy." Then she grinned her most mischievous grin. "I bet you were wondering what weird person would give you something like that."

"I'll tell you what I was really wondering." I hold up the little bag. "This definitely looks like something that came in one of your little packages from the publishers." (She frequently gets advance reader copies of books with little thematically-appropriate presents like candy, trinkets, and small household goods from our sales reps.) "What I really want to know is what book they were promoting with dead gummy bears?"

She cracked up and even after she stopped laughing never told me what the title is. No matter. My mind had already moved on to contemplating what this giant mutant gummy tastes like. I didn't take a bite, but it's only a matter of time before I give way to curiosity.
