I can turn a conversation about GROUT into an excuse why I must have a delicious sweet treat, NOW.
And to have something real actually happen in my life? I’m going to put on some weight.
Right? I mean, something good happens – I put on a little weight. You know, like it is Tuesday and the neighbors invite us for cocktails?
Come on, I’m out having a celebration. I am entitled to enjoy myself every now and again. I may put on a pound or two, but it was for a good cause.
Of course the only problem is we get social invitations 2 to 3 times per week, putting me on a 2.5 per week weight gain program.
What about when something bad happens?
Well I must nourish my soul with something yummy – perhaps a trip out to dinner?
I’ll just have appetizers and a drink – you know, something dietetic like chicken wings with ranch dip, the fresh baked cookies and a hummus sampler.
And one drink makes drink number two seem like such a great idea. After all, I am upset about something.
I am entitled to comfort myself every now and again. Make that 3.0 times per week.
As a matter of fact writing this blog has been a bit draining…
I think I’ll go see what’s in the pantry!
