Text Message From My Daughter

by Marinka on June 17, 2008

I got this text message from my daughter, sent from her babysitter’s cell phone:

Mommy did u find the rushin candy behind the computer because me and [insert brother’s name here] found it. And ate it.

The “rushin candy” is the candy that my mother brought over from Russia. For some reason, there is a disproportionate amount of Russian candy that features drawings of bears on the wrapper, but it does not deter anyone that I know from eating it. On the contrary, it makes us feel at one with nature, like we’re supporting the environment almost.

What’s this about bears?

Is the candy made from bears?

Does it taste like honey?

By popular request, I am providing a picture of the candy wrapper featuring the bears. Is this enough? Or would you like me to consume some of this candy now? Perhaps you’ll be satisfied if I move back to Russia and devote my life to eating this candy?!

It doesn’t taste like honey. It tastes like chocolate and wafers. And fur.
