Okay so I'm reading Cookme123's blog and I'm reading the comments and Marinamoo mentions salty snacks....then I remember I have some Cheddar Jack crackers in the cupboard...I get up and read the box and count out 25 little cracker squares and as I'm doing it..I'm picking up the little corners and broken pieces... 19, 20, this one's broken, eat it, 21,
22, broken one...and in my mind I'm saying, "this one doesn't count..it's broken." Then I'm saying to myself.. "No need to track these little broken pieces.."... then I remember that I have Laughing Cow Cheese. I get one wedge of the cheese and start spreading it on my little tiny crackers. Oh no...there's a little cheeses left over..I'll need another cracker. No..I
can just pile it on one that has the least amount of cheese on it. So I march my paper plate of little hor devours to the computer and crunch them down in a few seconds. Hmmm...I want more. "No, you just got finished tracking your food...c'mon now." "I'll just take this plate and throw it away"...fully knowing that I was going to go back into the cupboard and grab a handful of chex mix from the box that I'd seen next to the Cheddar Jacks.
I stick my hand in the box and come up with pretzels. Not my first choice...I dig again. Hmmm...where are those little melba toast looking crunchy things that I like...I start shaking the box..hoping that my favorites will somehow magically float to the top...lol. I start turning the box over while looking into it and shaking it. Shake and turn...shake and turn.
I've found one!! The ONLY one. I eat it... quickly.
Mmm..crunchy... I like the garlic taste. I'm not fond of the pretzels, though. I say to myself... "You can just put the pretzels in your mouth and suck off the garlic flavor and throw the pretzel away." "How many calories could there be in that?" "Not many!"
Then I say it.... out loud... " NO!!! STOP IT!!! NOW!!!" ok....
"GO DO YOUR EXERCISES OR SOMETHING"... okay
I fill up my water jug with Crystal Light Green Tea w/Lemon and start to drink it.
I'm reminded of Saturday night when I went out to the trunk of the car to retrieve the Easter candy I'd purchased for Haley's basket. I opened up the candy and was horrified that the chocolate hollow bunny had melted!!! I did a double take when I picked up the box to admire the cute little chocolate bunny ...with all those wonderful childhood memories flooding back into my brain...ahhhh...the happy easter mornings and dresses, gloves and bonnets...eating the ears off my chocolate bunny and ........... SHOCK!!!! The bunny looked like Frosty the Snowman...you know..the one that MELTED. Bad enough it was a blob of chocolatey hardened mess...but it was sideways, I tell you...sideways!!! It didn't melt down at the feet of this poor creature..(the box must've been laying on its side)..it was flattened to the side of the box!!! (disturbing sight...very disturbing!)
Then there was...well..there's just no easy way to say this.... there was this ONE EYE!!!!!
This white and blue candy eye...just LOOKING at me!!!! It had this horrified look!!!!
ONE EYE!!!! What happened to the other one???? It must've been sucked into the chocolate.
I shudder to think.... scary....lol. I really don't think I'll ever look at another chocolate bunny and not remember that hideous creature!!!! I hope I don't have nightmares..haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.
Well of course I HAD to open it. I cannot believe I actually broke off a piece of this weird blobby bunny and put it in my mouth... but I did it. (sigh) Ashamed of myself...I quickly threw the rest away...saying to myself... "Must get up early and go on a hunt to the stores to find a chocolate bunny"....
Sunday morning...and three stores later... I purchased one of the three little chocolate bunnys that Family Dollar had left on their shelves.
Seriously...it was that or go back to Kroger for Mr. BIG EARS...to the tune of ten bucks. No way....no way I was paying for a huge chocolate bunny who was all ears. And these ears...let me tell ya'...did I say they were big? They were 14 inches long with a 4 inch bunny body!!!
Ahhhh...the kid has too much candy anyway...lol.
Okay...now that I've exhausted myself with my ramblings...I'm going now.
Maybe I'll take a nap...those cheesey snacks made me sleepy.
I'll exercise later....
Just thought you should know.
