I really miss the tan M&M's

Sitting here reading BikeForums and munching. Who needs blue, I miss the tan.

A ride on the bike would make you forget all about M & Ms....

I miss them, too. But I also really, really like the blue.

Sigh. Life is so complicated.

Hey, I'm just happy we got plain old "blue".

It coulda been called "periwinkle", "cornflower", or, even worse, "azul".

but Blue is good for you. recent research in spinal rehab showed that the same dye used in blue M&M's promoted healing and recovery in spinal injury. though the subjects temporarily do turn blue in the process.
