WHO IS EATING MY FOOD? THE MICE?
Sunday, December 30, 2012
If I didn't know better I would think some people want to make me fat(ter)! On the 20th a package arrived and I emailed the sender to ask if it was perishable as I had already eaten too much that day and they said no so I put it aside until Monday (after I did my semi weekly weigh in!) and opened the box and I dived in!! It was a large snow scene tin split into quarters with cashews in one, chocolate walnuts in another, white frosted pecans in a third and the last quarter had honey roasted cinnamon pecans. Within an hour I had eaten at least half of each quarter even the cinnamon pecans which I didn't particularly like, but in the spirit of the holiday while reading the nutritional information enclosed with the tin--as if anyone is really interested in the nutritional information as they are eating this assortment!!! Let's face it, both nuts and chocolate are good for you though I don't think you are suppose to eata years requirement in one hour!
And then that afternoon I received another package and something happened--it all disappeared and all I had was the empty woven basket it came in! There had been cheeses, crackers, chocolate cookies, assorted candies and small cakes in the package--now all gone!
I really have to call the exterminator because no one could eat ALL that--both packages--unless they were squirrels storing it or mice taking it all into a private hole. I did suspect Santa but he wasn't due until that night.
This is a mystery----mmmmmm--maybe I should call Olivia from "Law & Order" or one of the other police or Sherlock Holmes--Agatha Christie? Well before I call anyone guess I better get rid of some evidence--my scale doesn't lie!
