Candy Contest Redux

Characters: me, kid

I found a magazine on the ground that was built like a box. It seemed to be some kind of cross between advertisement and pornography (in the spirit of a Victoria's Secret Catalog, I suppose). Picking it up, I went into a house and sat on a sofa...hiding the magazine.
Two young children knocked on the door and came in. They were looking for the magazine. I dug it up and gave it to them, and they mentioned something about a "candy contest".
Note The mention of candy contest reminded me of a dream from a long time ago, reading someone's Livejournal interests named jadebob, which brought up the term. This made me lucid and I started asking what a candy contest was.
me: "Wait. Candy contest. I've heard of this before. What is it?"
kid: "You have to solve puzzles, and they plant clues all over the world."
me: "You mean it's like an alternate reality game?"
kid: "It's a story. And if you win, you get a prize."
me: "Who gives you the prize?"
kid: (rolling eyes) "The CANDY COMPANY, of course!"

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
