About a month ago, I was enjoying a delicious tootsie pop at work when I noticed that I had gotten a wrapper with the Indian shooting the star! I don’t know if any of you remember collecting these as a child, but I immediately got excited. Now, maybe it was the 2pm sugar rush or just one of my punchy moods, but either way, I decided to send it in with a little note in hopes of receiving my free tootsie pop in the mail.
My note said something like this…
“I found the indian shooting the star! Can’t wait to receive my free tootsie pop in the mail! PS: It took me 672 licks to get to the center of my tootsie pop.”
I chuckled a little, shoved my post-it note letter and wrapper in an envelope, dropped it in the mail and forgot about it. That is until last night, when I received two packages from Tootsie Roll Industries. My first reaction to the large manilla envelope was, “What the…” and then I burst into laughter as I remembered my weird and random fan mail.
Here’s what they sent me…
I have not been sleeping very well. My lower back has been achy and I have just been feeling really uncomfortable. I’ve been starting to sleep on my side because I haven’t been able to get comfortable on my back, but even this is causing me issues. They say you should lay on your right side, but that makes it so my back is to my husband, which I don’t like. But, when I’ve tried to sleep on my left side, without fail, I wake up with a tingling and totally dead arm! Any suggestions? I want to go back to my zombie sleeps.
