You Know You're Desperate When...

You know you're really desperate for something sweet when...

-you steal your son's potty training reward candy and find something else to bribe him with


-you find a fly in your 2 day old leftover Slurpee and now you can't eat it and you almost cry

-you want to go find the Christmas stockings and see if somehow a piece of candy got overlooked and is possibly nestled in the toe

-you eat a couple of your son's Flintstones vitamins

-you steal a sip of the generic brand, warm, diet cola you are going to marinate some meat in...and now you want more

-you are thoroughly disappointed when you get out all the Halloween decorations and there is not one piece of leftover candy hiding in there.

-you're willing to pay $.85 for a measly candy bar from the checkout aisle at the grocery store

It's all true folks.

Are you sure YOU aren't pregnant, too? :-)

Not only is it true, it is a genetic condition known as Jackmanjunkitis. I know several family members suffering from this very same condition. I once had a particularly desperate day and melted a mallow bunny from Easter (I'm sure it was way past Easter, Scotty did it with me) and mixed it with Rice Krispies in attempt to make something yum. It didn't work. Now I just run over to my mom's who usually has the proper "medication" for this disorder...

I think you might be prego! You had better check that out and get back to me on that one!

Scott Family said...

I have the same problem and I better not be pregnant! :) No, but I am glad I am not the only one who has ever snuck a flinstone vitamin before.

These were definitely laugh-out-loud. I love that they're all true. I thought surely you were exaggerating about the toe of the Christmas stockings . . .

so I read this post early today, and then while I was making dinner I had to add a coke to the pork I was making, and I totally took a drink of it, and then I remembered you. haha.

I HATE when I can't find a treat and it's all that I want. hate it.

Cara said...

it took you longer than two days to finish the slurpee? No wonder you're looking for sugar...you passed up your chance the day before when you had a perfectly good, non-fly slurpee.

umm...i only live two minutes away and always have a stash...really, you don't have to resort to flinstones, nor fly infested slurpees!

oh so true... I love all your posts by the way! I always laugh :) To cure my craving I finally just bought a pumpkin pie from Costco. YUMMMM!
