Summary

Sol was my grandfather. He would use us kids as a focus group to try out new candy ideas, such as Sputnik gum or Monster cards to go with gum. My first writing job was selling riddles to him for a penny a riddle for Riddle gumballs. The question was on one side of the gumball and the answer was one the other, so I had to write tight.
