One thought on “Feast”

  1. For the past 2 nights I have been awaken to the Willy Wanka and Chocolate Factory song the ‘candy man’ and I am feeling happy but I’m starting to get annoyed now. It has become my alarm song to wake up to and go to the bathroom at 3ish AM why that song? Why that time? And no I didn’t watched the movie recently or heard it either and I only hear “candy man can because he makes the world go round”
    And no I don’t like candy either
