Ooooh, maybe I've figured it out!

So. Sunday night I came home from work, got ready for bed, and started my nighttime routine. Which, of course, includes my 2 Reese's Peanut Butter cups. This has continued to be quite the
project. That night my son who is, apparently, like the Princess and the Pea with a bionic ear when sleeping, was sleeping even lighter than usual. It took me 6 minutes, people, 6 minutes! to open one PB cup. I timed it. I watched the digital clock tick off the minutes while being ever so grateful that it was Sunday night, when I don't have to get up for work the next day, and not Saturday night. The second one only took 3 minutes. I say only 3 minutes, but seriously, open a PB cup. Go ahead, I'll wait. What does it take you? About 6 seconds? Yeah. Anyway, I had an epiphany last night. I didn't open it like a normal person does by unwrapping it. I sliced the top open. The crinkling was kept to a minimum and it was open in about 15 seconds. WooHoo.

Why didn't I think of this sooner?

Why am I obsessed with this subject?

Time to move along. Just move along, Tam.

Glad to hear you found a solution. :) How about opening them before you go into the room?

I was thinking the exact same as Barb. Why not grab your nightly reward and open them outside the door and then dive for the bed so he doesn't hear you and your peanut butter cups tip toeing across the bedroom floor.

Welllll....they're actually kept in my nightstand to keep other sticky fingers away from my prize. MmwaHaHaHa...they'd be so gone if they were left out. Sad, aren't I?
