The world tricked me!

I have been craving something sweet for a few days, so I decided today I would buy a pack of M&M to eat at the conference I'm attending. I love how the shell dissolves, and there's milk chocolatey goodness inside... I could really look forward to it, and know that I had planned it into my day.
I picked up a pack at the store, and tucked them in my backpack for safekeeping. I opened them before the speakers started, and was enjoying them thoroughly when I thought, this seems like a lot of M&Ms. I looked at the package -- which looked like a regular M&M package -- and it said on the front, "Shareable! Two servings inside!"
Are you kidding me? Darn those M&M Mars marketing people! Who makes a 2-serving package?? Anyway, I was kind of sad because I knew there was no way I was going to eat only half the package. It was almost better that I resigned myself to it from the beginning, than to be sad about it when it happened. They were delicious, although I could've probably done without the last handful. And they made me sooooo tired... Candy saps your energy. I didn't go over my calories, but was that really the best way to spend them? Probably not. But, it was a "fix" and I'll be good for a while. At least until I get PMS.
