Cotton Kleenex

So my job had a little fair yesterday. There were booths and prizes, popcorn and cotton candy. Like any responsible employee I decided to partake in the popcorn- a favorite treat of mine- and some cotton candy (which basically amounts to fluffy sugar that melts in your mouth).
So I'm relaxing at my desk- as relaxed as I could be- eating my light blue cotton candy from my styrofoam cup.
Pause for a newsbreak: On my desk itself I have various items decorating the desktop. One important section happens to be a pile of light blue kleenex.
Back to the story. I'm leaning back in my chair, eating. And, someone happens to walk up to me to ask a question. I continue eating, but I also smile and nod, listening to the question. SUDDENLY, the lady yells, "WHAT are you eating!?" I'm confused, not sure what is happening, but I say, "Uh, cotton candy..."
At this point, she is bent over laughing, her face is red and tears are streaming down her face. She said, "I thought you were eating your kleenex!"
