Mike Armstrong is back home, so maybe Almond Roca can make a move to become official state candy

Quit clutching your chest, Mike. It was just a joke. And not my joke, either. Blame your colleague, Rep. Sam Hunt, D-Olympia.

I asked Hunt what was in play on this final day of the legislative session and he said,

“With Armstrong gone, we’re going get his bill out of committee and amend it with Almond Roca,” he said. (Joking. Honest!)

Rep. Mike Armstrong, R-Wenatchee, had a stent inserted last week after a mild heart attack and is now under doctor’s orders to take 10 days off. He had sponsored a bill to have Aplets and Cotlets declared the official state candy.

If this really were “One Washington,” the official candy would be Almond Roca Aplets and Cotlets.

Funny stuff
