Ah, this blog post was written over 6 years ago. I never heard from Jelly Belly, not even a letter telling me I was not qualified for the job. Oh, well, even though I would have been really good at this, it wasn’t meant to be.
Instead, I am putting more of my energy into my school chaplaincy. The kindergarten teacher and I are discussing doing a yearbook for the school. The 4th grade teacher who I helped with the mission project last year is thinking of how we can do it next year and bring in even more help for the other 4th grade classes.
So, I guess Jelly Belly lost out.
While perusing photos on Flickr, I found a photo of the JellyBelly motorhome that travels around and hands out candy. This inspired me to write to JellyBelly and ask for the job promoting their product. I think I would be great at this job, driving around the country and talking to people and handing out candy. Terry could drive the RV and take pictures and I could talk to people. JellyBelly would be the talk of any town when we arrived. I would be willing to dress up as a jelly bean to get even more attention. However, because it’s JellyBelly, I think people would come out in droves for this great treat.
So, keep your eyes peeled, you never know when I might arrive with jelly beans for your town!
