My fav peanut eating memory...well....there was this little pub in the big city, and it was an hour away...and they had free peanuts on the table, and you could crack em and eat em and throw the shells on the ground, and anytime someone was walking around you could hear the crunches..it was the BEST place to have a nice cool beer and eat peanuts!
