People sometimes tell me I’m a character. But they don’t know the half of it.
It was my first job title.
For my first job, I spent two summers dressed as a candy bar at Hersheypark.
For two years, I signed autographs and frolicked around Hersheypark as a life-size mock-up of the Hershey Kiss, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, and, yes, sometimes the York Peppermint Pattie.
It’s sort of creepy, if you think about it.
