Age 4.

🔶 🔶 🔶

By the time I was 4, I was really curious,

I guess.

Funny thing I don’t remember much

but the story I hear at every Christmas time …

🔶 🔶 🔶

My parents were in another room

when I had decided

to take a good look

at Christmas ornaments

and

I guess became curious

if they were as tasty as the candy canes.

🔶 🔶 🔶

I guess I figured at the age of 4 that if it is shaped like a candy cane then …

it must taste like a candy cane right?

🔶 🔶 🔶

WRONG!

🔶 🔶 🔶

All that did for me was get me

an instant emergency room visit!

So a word of advice:

Just because something looks the same,

it might not mean that it is.
