Oh god, I thought for sure this was going to end with the dude being allergic to peanuts and then dying. I have been reading too much dark stuff.

Clancy…this ending needs to be written! Hmm, perhaps I’ll take a walk down this path someday and see where it leads me. 😄 Thank you for reading!

In the background “You’ve got a friend in me” played. 🤣

Ugh. Melanie, no! Take the high road! 😂

Sadly, of the two, I'm definitely the Melanie of this story. Though I'd probably only fantasize about my rival's peanut buttered humiliation. I wouldn't have the guts to pull it off.

Haha, Melanie does have some guts, doesn’t she? Thanks for reading, Meg!

The peanut-butter offensive. All's fair in love and war, right? I loved this line: " ... and her flat stomach would morph into a wasteland of pudge." I can testify to this. Great story, Justin!

Right you are! Am I allowed to re-title this story? I think I like “The Peanut Butter Offensive” a lot more than the original. Thanks so much for reading, Sharron!

Nicely written story Justin! I know a few people I would have liked to use the pb & jelly on.
