Good morning, South Windsor! Today is Monday, July 2, 2012. There are 182 days left in the year.
OK, so on Friday I wrote about the South Windsor Town Clerk’s office, hereinafter known as The Greatest Place on Earth, because it’s candy dish is nothing short of AMAZING.
Anyway, I was tipped off (by the people in the Clerk’s office - probably because I was eating all the sweets) that the South Windsor Finance Department, which is located on the second floor of the Town Hall, also has a terrific candy dish.
So, on Friday afternoon, I abandoned my post at the Town Clerk’s office and braved the one flight of stairs to the Finance Department, where I was greeted by the following: four lovely women working diligently, one bottle of half-full (that’s how I view the world, kids) bottle of hand sanitizer, and one entirely empty (that’s also how I view the world, kids) candy dish. The accompanying photo reveals the sad state of affairs in the Finance Department.
I was assured that the candy dish would be filled and that hand sanitizer was not a delicious substitute. But, as Abraham Lincoln once said, assurances do not a full candy dish make (Note: I’m pretty sure that, just as he probably wasn’t a vampire hunter, Abraham Lincoln also did not utter that phrase. But I digress.)
You’re on notice , South Windsor Finance Department. We may want your books balanced, but not so when it comes to our diets. Get some candy in there, pronto.
That is all.
