Have you noticed that every office in America seems to have a Werther's Lady? You know her; she's the nice older lady who always keeps a bowl of "Werther's Originals" candies on her desk, a bowl from which all co-workers are invited to freely partake. As a result, I would wager that a great percentage of the America's cubicle workers, at this very moment, have butterscotch-coffee-caramel breath and brownish teeth.
Our Werther's Lady's name is Sarah. The Werther's Lady at Dan's office is named Gloria. At my dad's office, it's alternately Shirley and Hugh. OK, so maybe it's not always a lady. But there seems to be a veritable army of nice ladies pushing Werther's candies throughout the Cubicle Lands of America. Has anyone else noticed this? It's kind of creepy.
But it's also good. Werther's Originals are dee-lish. When my teeth fall out at age 40, Werther's will likely be a major culprit.
I was going to link to the Werther's official page, but I found this page instead, obviously created by someone who has a LOT of time on their hands.
I was wondering ... what would the plural of "Werther's" be? Werther'ses? Wertherses? Werthers'? Tout les Werther? Wertherii? Something to ponder next time I'm in the mood for deep thought.
