Oh, it was definitely the most difficult time of both our lives.
Why would you do that?
It's something that I automatically...
It's all anyone does is pick at me.
You know what? I'm sorry. We need some privacy. I need you to take a break.
Look, you want some?
The colors are extraordinary.
I was one of the first people to see David when he was admitted here.
I'm the one who found him, and I seen the whole thing happen.
My name is David Melwood, and 14 months ago, I was struck by a rainbow, and I am now made of Skittles. Life has changed a lot since I was struck by a rainbow. I can't control so much where the Skittles go. We got brooms in every room, and dustpans, and bowls where, wherever we need them.
I still get stares. That's what people do, they just look and the think, "I wonder what he tastes like."
There's things. I mean I don't have to go to the barber anymore. I'm saving money there.
Of course there are good days and there are bad days, but we are going through them together.
Uh, I don't remember everything, obviously.
I was at home making dinner. David was taking our dog to go out for a walk.
Out of the blue, all of a sudden it just started chuckin'
Then the sun broke through the clouds. It was like some rainbow god, and it just comes swoopin' down out of the sky to touch the Earth.
And then pkkk.
Pkk. pkk pkk pkk pkk. Little colors everywhere.
And then I got the call. I didn't know what to think. My mind was racing. Uh...
It was a shock.
And I woke up. It was a very weird vibe in the room, okay?
Well, from a medical perspective there's nothing wrong with David. His skin is just now Skittles.
I knew my husband was going through an identity crisis.
One can only imagine what someone would go through when their skin is small, multi-colored candy.
Eventually I decided to venture out.
He would wear disguises.
Alright, I am not Skittles Man. Hey, buddy. It took me a while to get used to myself.
Everyone says it's what's on the inside that counts, but in David's case it's on the outside too.
When I met him, I couldn't even talk. I was just like uh uh uh uh uh.
I'm pretty popular.
He's somewhat of a local celebrity.
I am a man made of Skittles and there's nothing wrong with that. Life is sweet, for me anyway. Who can say that everyday they wake up? There's more where that came from.
I just think he's the most amazing man in the world.
