When Stale is Good / by Alice Zhao

For the past several months I've been telling Jared about how a previous coworker of mine once received as a gift a box of Peeps, with holes strategically punched in the packaging to allow the peeps to grow stale for a few days.  Because everyone knows that's the best way to eat them!  I kept using phrases like "How romantic", "That's the sweetest thing I've ever heard", and eventually I'm sure I just said "Are you going to buy me Peeps or what?". Finally, he got the hint and surprised me with this on Easter.  I can't really say it's a surprise, especially if I nagged him about it over and over and over again.  But, I'll just pretend it was. =)
