The Everlasting Starburst

I just completely washed (normal agitation/normal spin) and completely dried (for an hour) a cherry starburst. On accident, of course. It was overlooked in the pocket of some shorts. The spooky thing? It came out still wrapped and mostly normal. The sides were a bit rounded, much like a pebble in one of those little tumbler things you  played with as a kid. Other than that, it was fine. I think I could have unwrapped it and eaten it, except I didn’t. I threw it away promptly.

All of this brings me to wonder. What exactly is it doing when it’s inside your body? The results of my washing/drying just doesn’t bode well since, you know, you are what you eat. Well, actually, maybe that makes me sweet and almost indestructible…

    ummmm, that is scary.

    thanks for the sound advice on saving the 2T shorts – great point. I did not think about that. I think I have missed out on my growth spurt – I seem to have stayed more round than tall for quite some time. 🙂
