Confessions :: I ate it.

3 Feb

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.

Him:  what?

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.

Him:  what.

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???

    I dont like candy. Well, i’m sure i do, but I tell myself I dislike sweets and that they make me feel sick. Which they totally DO! but……

    THIS IS MY FAVORITE TREAT KNOWN TO MAN!!!!!!!!!!! I will stockpile them and eat 1-2 a day until they are gone. Its quite a happy time in my house. I hide them from my husband b/c I can’t afford to have my stockpile cut in half. Its just not natural

    =)

    love you for sharing this!
