There were many errands to run this morning. While I was in the grocery store, I passed a spooky display of goodies. Perhaps while I’m here, I should go ahead and purchase “trick or treat” candy, I thought. My cardinal rule is to either wait until the day of Halloween to pick up candy OR buy icky stuff that I don’t like. It all looked very enticing and I had not yet had breakfast or lunch. Plus, I always want to be “that” house. You understand? The one with the best treats. It IS for the neighborhood children, after all. So I bought some favorites candy brands and left them in the grocery bag when I got home. Out of sight, out of mind.
A few hours later, I was digging in the pantry for the ingredients to make pizza crust and I spotted our Halloween candy bowl. I rinsed it out, dried it and then thought….well, what harm could it do to place the unopened bags in the bowl. And that’s when it happened. I realized there was another force in the kitchen that was stronger than myself. The M & M’s were possessed! The demons beckoned, “OPEN ME”. And I did. They shrilled, “Eat a package.” And I did. They demanded. “Try another.” I obeyed the voices. What a curse it is to have such a sweet tooth! I may have to go back to the store Wednesday morning. 🙂 For the children, of course~
(By the way, the voices must be speaking to hubby, also. I notice the Twizzlers are now open!) 🙂
