Better Communication Through M & M’s
M & M’s had a contest where a couple could only communicate by using specially printed M & M’s.
“This challenge provides an opportunity for consumers to connect with
MY M&M’S(R) on an even more personal level, following this couple as they
experience one month of sharing their thoughts and feelings only on MY
M&M’S,” said Jim Cass, MY M&M’S(R) vice president and general manager.
“We’ve printed such emotional phrases as ‘I love you’ and ‘U make me
smile,’ and also phrases specific to the couple, such as ‘Caring, kind’ and
‘I am the luckiest,’ giving them a variety of words, phrases, symbols and
even colors to choose from during their month of silence.”
Of course, the winning couple are young, they are engaged, but it doesn’t say if they live together. He proposed by having custom imprinted Marry Me, April 29, and Jen and Ryan on the candy coated chocolate.
Even if they don’t live together the important phrases on M & M’s would be things like, “you’re snoring” “hand me the remote” “we’re out of beer” “do I look fat in this?” “is she hotter than I am?”
Or just leave them blank?!
You know the expression ‘that’s so sweet it makes my teeth hurt’? Them poor dentists must be feeling awful left out. Maybe they’ll do the same thing with sticks of carrot…
I’d like to see alphabet M & M’s!
The whole time I was reading this I thought, “They cannot possibly be married!” Boy, did I have them pegged. No long-time married couple could only communicate with such sweet phrases.
The only way I could communicate with my husband through M&M’s is if, like you mentioned, they had some that said,”You’re snoring” etc. But I’d also have to have:
You’re a jerk
Stop ignoring me
Can we watch something besides CourtTV?
LOL, and his would say???
His would say:
(nearly imperceptible nod)
I wasn’t snoring.
Fine, but we’re not watching Lifetime.
I don’t care (this one is used as an answer to virtually everything and is interchangeable with the “ungh” one)
Of course, I don’t care… so obvious, how could I miss that one?
No animatronic “yes dear”?
Oh heck no! I don’t think I’ve ever gotten a “yes, dear” in our married life! My dad used to say it to my mom in this whiney, hen-pecked voice that drove her nuts, but was always good for a laugh. Paul, however, won’t even play along for fear that I might actually misconstrue it as him actually agreeing to something!
Yeah, I can use the whiney voice, but my ass better be moving toward doing whatever she asked for!
i just thought that married life is the happiest point of my life.::’
i think the married life is the most special time where a man and woman shares each others blessings and commitment~-.
