“I finally exorcised this damn chocolate demon that’s been gnawing at me for decades,” Dwayne Johnson wrote on Instagram. “We were evicted from Hawaii in ‘87 and after all these years – I finally got back home to right this wrong. I was broke as hell, so I used to steal a king sized @snickers EVERY DAY from 7-11 for almost a year when I was 14yrs old, on my way to the gym.” He called a Snickers bar his pre-workout meal, which doesn’t sound healthy. Then again, I don’t look like The Rock, so who am I to judge?
“I’ve exercised a few big demons over the years (I still have a few left;) so I know this one seems VERY SILLY, but every time I come back home to Hawaii and drive by 7-11. I always knew I needed to go in and clean out every Snickers bar they had – the right way. And as a bonus it was a lot of fun to take care of everybody who walked into 7-11 while I was there. Least I could do considering all the shit I used to steal from here.”
The moral of the story: “We can’t change the past and some of the dumb stuff we may have done, but every once in a while we can add a little redeeming grace note to that situation — and maybe put a big smile on some stranger’s faces.” Also, if you see The Rock, follow him into a store and demand he buy you candy.
