When given a HUGE lollipop, you find you cannot eat it all in one sitting. (or standing, whichever the case may be)
So you must find a safe place to put your lollipop to await the next time you want a lick. (or bite)
If your Mom has a coffee table that has some wiggle room between the boards that make up the top and the metal that makes up the frame you find that it is the perfect spot to place the stick to your lollipop! Just push it in and leave it there. Instant new decor along with a lollipop storage spot. Seems like a win-win situation! That is, of course, if your Mom WANTS her living room decor to include lollipops!
And really it adds a pop of color right? So why would any Mom object?
(They have been there for 6 days now. Maybe they will soon decide to eat them?)
