about this story

There was just one, single, solitary blue m&m left.

This made no sense. I knew that there had been a whole package of delicious peanut m&ms on the table just a moment ago. Who would have dared to take them? After all, I was well known on the streets as "The Guy That Loves to Eat m&ms and So If You Want To Buy Him a Treat m&m's Are a Good Idea," and so it struck me as odd that someone would be this bold.

Suddenly, a loud clap of thunder outside jolted me to attention. I ran to the window and looked outside. A bolt of lightning lit up the sky and made me say, "Ooooooo.... spooooky." But it also reminded me that I was trying to solve a mystery, and I was stumped.

But then I remembered: THE SECURITY CAMERAS! Surely they would have caught the m&m thief! I ran to my computer and loaded up the flickr page to see the shots that had been taken in the last hour, only to find that the stupid technology was being stupid and telling me the stupid photos were unavailable.

Dejected, I went into the kitchen, head held low, chin on chest. I was never going to get those m&ms back, and it was time to accept the truth. I was a terrible sleuth. I was bad at solving mysteries. I was freaking AWESOME at building lego spaceships, but that was beside the point. I opened the fridge, and---
