It’s not Easter yet, is it? Did I miss Valentine’s and St. Paddy’s Day?
Why are Cadbury Creme Eggs out…in this world…tempting me…calling my name as I walk by.
Don’t they know I am calling it quits on all sugar…all processed…all junk food?
Don’t they know I am running, working my butt off to get back in shape?
Don’t they know I have absolutely no self control when it comes to these little bits of heaven?
I thought I had more time before these little eggs made their appearance again…but noooo...
The eggs have arrived.
I have no self control. And I completely embarrassed myself yesterday.
I run to the store to make dinner for a friend who just had a baby.
I see the Valentine candy isle…I stop dead in my tracks.
Shake my head and without knowing, I have 4 Cadbury Creme Eggs in my hand.
Then I unwrap one…in the middle of store…and eat it.
All of it. Enjoying every second.
I don’t care who is watching me either.
Then I go check out with my 2 year old asking me “what you eating Mommy?”
I ignore him.
So the cashier, who is all of 16 years old…starts scanning the food.
The eggs are the last in line. I contemplate whether or not to tell him there was one more egg…
He scans the last egg and I say:
Me: oh, there’s one more.
Me: there was one more egg.
Him: oh. where is it, in your cart?
Me: um. no.
Him: (staring at me blankly)
Me: I ate it.
Me: I ate it. Sorry.
Him: you ate it.
Me: yes I did. Sorry.
And he stares at me again and I start talking to my son like that conversation never happened.
I grab my bags. Walk casually away.
And DIE from embarrassment.
So there you have it. I have a serious problem.
Who eats a Cadbury Egg in the middle of a grocery store???
