I just cleaned my room and discovered I can no longer close my nightstand drawer–it has too much candy inside it. Shamefully, I hung my head and then threw my hip into it! I wondered…do I have a problem? And then I remembered that I live with 5 sets of sticky fingers. Ones that like my taste in snacks. Okay, not really snacks. Candy…in the shapes of Sweet tarts, the really big ones. I enjoy the purple ones. Then again, I love anything grape. I usually throw out the yellow ones. I detest all things yellow, usually. And then I have Zotz, Chunky bars, Lindt balls (sea salt favorite), and Sixlets. All of them living comfortably beside where I sleep at night.
I am a huge fan of “The Closer.” Brenda Lee has the same fetish, but for different reasons. Although I can never see what she’s eating in those foil covered packages. I have no idea what it could be.
And then, of course, we have Barbra Streisand in The Mirror Has Two Faces. Another favorite of mine. She’s always stashing and eating. What can I say? It’s a cozy thing to do. Hide and sneak. Plus no one ever eats my goodies. It’s a well known rule of the house. Unless I donate freely. Like when my daughter comes with puppy dog eyes and asks for a sweet tart. Can I deny a little girl who wants the yellow ones?
And so I segue into my New Year’s resolution…running two miles a day. Okay, so two miles sounds too far just typing it. I’ll start with running half a mile and walk the other half. Then I’ll graduate to the one and a half mark…maybe two times a week. Either way, I’m shaking off some of this sneaky weight I’ve gained. Who knew it would “sneak” up on ME?
I will keep you posted on my progress. I’m pretty sure I’m going to start this thing on Monday. Oh wait, that’s a holiday, right? Okay, Tuesday it is! And I’ll even donate a box of candy to the troops out in the living room. The entire box of Good and Plenty I found in the back:)
