ok.. here is something very very very unusual.. I got to work .. and sat down to have a small smack .. M&Ms.. I have my water.. and the peanut type M&Ms.. when I opened the M&Ms.. I reached in .. and grabbed a few at a time.. I just so happened grabbed 3.. but not just any three.. I grabbed three blue M&Ms.. What are the odds on getting three consecutive blue M&Ms?? i decided to count the number of M&Ms in this bag.. and I got the following..

Red: 10

Orange: 9

Yellow: 6

Green: 8

Brown: 6

Blue: 19

.. now I don’t feel as special.. I thought I had some special power to draw out the blue candy.
