Arguing with myself

Monday, April 15, 2013

Me: (rushing through the house to go to my tax appt. Yeah, thats me. Wait till the last minute). I'm Hungry, better grab something
ME: Yea! Grab cookies. there are 5 left!
Me: Ok, I will just eat one.
ME: Well take two at least. I mean, you dont know HOW long this might take. You could then make bad choices because you would be so hungry!
Me: True. And I had a good breakfast so I can fit 2 cookies into my day, easy.
(goes to the bag of cookies, takes 2).
ME: You know, you may as well take them all. You know you will never eat just two. You KNOW you will eat the other ones as the day goes by, so just take them now.
Me: No, I only am gonna take 2. I GOTTA GO.
Me: (take the bag, grabs file, gets in truck. Eats a cookie. ) Man, I love cookies! I mean, what a genious was the guy who first made cookies! He musta been SOOOO proud and amazed at his miraculous concoction! (eats 2nd cookie, truck is warmed up now, good to go).
ME: See? Dont you feel better now that you dont have to fight about the cookies? Just eat the 5. You can have lunch later.
Me: (stop mid chew). Um. this is stupid. Why CANT I just eat 2? Isnt 2 a good amount of cookie goodness? Does it really have to be ALL?
ME: NO! DO NOT START THAT CRAP! You are weak! You know how you are! You have no control! You are just gonna make yourself feel bad later when you go back and eat the rest.
Me: NO! I'm not doing what you say! (I got out of truck, put the cookie bag on the patio table and drove away). Screw you, I mean ME!

Went to tax appt, got lunch (Turkey burger, no cheese, no mayo, no fries). Came home and put the cookies in the cabinet. They are going with Frank tomorrow in his lunch bag. ALL of them.

ME has been quiet ever since. I think she is mad at Me. Good. I hate that Biotch.

    Great blog! Has all the elements of a good novel, good versus evil, triumphant victory, kind of a payback.

Trouble with cookies is that they are, cookies!!

    Of course -- I just got back home from the grocery store where the tiny brownies, the energy bars, the sesame sticks, and the Quaker popped rice snacks just jumped into my cart... And had to be sampled on my way home.

The tortilla chips made it home unscathed and I usually don't overdo on them. I use them as crackers with my home-made chili and other soups.

I need to portion out the other stuff into one-serving baggies to take to work with me, to go along with my apple.

Cheers!! to your win today.

    Oh honey, I have these arguments, too. When I give in to my bratty self, my bratty self gets brattier (and fattier). I have a new argument to use on my bratty, fatty self: "J (my beloved b.i.l. whom we just reconciled with) gave up HEROIN! How wimpy are you if you cannot leave sugary $h!t alone?!?" That one shuts my mouth, usually. You can borrow it if you want. Oh, and don't forget, "it's just a cookie, dude". Good for you for showing those cookies who the boss is!

    Whew!! That was quite a battle! You must a have burned lots of calories just arguing with that biotch!!!
Next time she comes near you, ram her little head into a fence till her horns poke through, hammer those big horns down onto the fence so she cannot get free!!
that was too close a call to be lucky enough the next time!! emoticon emoticon
