anyway, as i walked in the door i happened to walk past one of the baggers as he was telling a customer about this:
now, if you know me, i very, very, very rarely buy candy bars. for the simple reason that if i buy them i will eat them and if i eat them it is not good for my girlish figure. but for some reason, at that very moment when i heard "snickers dark", i had to have one! i'd never had one, but it sounded so scumpdilyicious that i needed one right then and there!
i tried to put off the urgent need for a snickers dark while i made my way through the few items on my list. but the feeling persisted and i inevitably found myself in the candy aisle. i searched in vain, for there was not a snickers dark to be found! i was bound and determined, by some unknown force, to find one. i casually went from check stand to check stand, as to not draw attention to myself, in search of my snickers dark. but to no avail! so, instead of just admitting defeat and moving on i spotted this:
now, i've had milky way midnight before, and i could safely say that it is one of my favorite candy bars. so, to satisfy my "need" for dark chocolate, i grab one and threw it into my basket.
now this is when the crazy me gets even crazier. once in the car, i put it in my purse and refuse to eat it because it is not good for me and i don't need the extra calories, not to mention the fat. and there it stayed for the next week or two until i found myself back in the grocery store. not just in the grocery store, but in the candy aisle of the grocery store staring at the snickers dark on the shelf! tasting sweet success i hastily grabbed up the snickers dark and threw it into my basket.
at that moment, the thought never even crossed my mind that i would probably just tuck it away refusing to eat it once it had been purchased! sure enough, when i got into the car i grabbed it out of the plastic grocery bag and the reasonable me kicked in. i couldn't let myself eat it, you know, the fat and the calories that i didn't need!! i know i'm crazy! so, i stash it away in the console in my car where it lays undisturbed.
now, i have a month old milky way midnight in my purse, and a snickers dark in my car! two perfectly delicious candy bars that i spent money on that i will not let myself eat! why??!! because i am a nut case!
i've been thinking about this whole craziness and knowing that i needed to blog about it because i am looney. so, yesterday i was running late and had to leave the house without eating lunch. i was driving to my appointment and my stomach was telling me it was hungry. i glanced into my purse and saw the milky way midnight. but then i thought, "i can't eat it because i haven't blogged about it yet!" looney, i tell ya, looney, that's me!!
after my appointment, i ran into safeway to grab some celery for dinner. as i waited in line at the checkout stand, i glanced at the candy and saw this:the crazy me took over and tossed it onto the conveyor belt. i can't even recall where this one ended up! but i do know that i wouldn't let myself eat it!
for someone that very, very, very rarely buys candy bars, i have a pretty good stash in my possession. who knows when i will finally give in and eat them? maybe now that i have blogged about it i'll be able to let myself eat them.....
thanks snickers dark for bringing out the crazy in me!
