There is something you may not know about me; well, you know it if you have read my updated “About” page. I collect PEZ dispensers. I began my collection around 1994, mostly buying PEZ on my travels. I bought Bugs Bunny in Albuquerque , because that’s where he took a “wrong turn”, and my Disney PEZ (original characters Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, ect.) at Disneyland.
My friends also buy me PEZ Dispensers on their travels. One friend bought E.T. for me in Hong Kong. But yesterday I received my first package from Japan .
And it was a Halloween PEZ Dispenser ! I have an American friend from college who has lived in Japan for over a decade.
Technically, he bought this PEZ in Australia. Looking on the back, the dispenser and candy were made in Hungary, on behalf of PEZ Headquarters in Austria, imported to Melbourne, bought somewhere in Australia by my friend, who flew it with him back to Japan, then sent it to me in Minnesota.
It’s a well-traveled PEZ Dispenser. And it’s happiness in a tiny package.
