The 5 Second Rule…

Sometimes, The 5 Second Rule does not apply.  Like when you’re in the subway and your favorite flavor of gummy bear haplessly falls out of the bag and onto the platform.

Your first thought “5 Second Rule” and then reality kicks in as you’re bending over to pick it up.  You. Are. In. The. Subway. In. New. York. City. Tragic as it is, you have to let it go.  Even if it stares at you, begging you to pick it up, so as not to leave it to the mercy of the rats…or [shudder] the petulant child who is being ignoring by his parent[s] or nanny.

Sorry, little red gummy bear–for your sake, I hope the rat finds you first…
