pink with spots

one of the cruelest minor offenses to sibling duty that my sister committed as a teenager was her stubborn refusal to tell me what one of her jellybeans actually tasted like. i was wearing braces, and generally honored the orthodontist's ban on sticky candies of all types, including jelly beans. my sister was enjoying her gastronomic freedom and private stash of candy, and i just wanted to know what the pink speckled ones tasted like. she insisted it tasted like "pink with spots."
