Apart from the Voodoo List™ and the Things To Do Before I Die List™, I should also have the Things With Which I Should Not Be Trusted List™.
You didn’t really expect me to end that last one in a preposition, did you??
Anyway, as I was cleaning up the kitchen area, I noticed that the King Sized Kit Kat® Bar From Hades was still on the windowsill, where Hubby left it. I got that for him weeks ago. And it’s still there. Looking at me. Tempting me with its delicious, wafery goodness covered in tantalizing chocolate. I hear the siren song and feel the need to partake. But it’s Hubby’s bar.
And then it hit me. What if this is a test of willpower???
Aside patience, willpower is my forte. I have plenty of it. I can beat this. Oh yes, I can. And I will.
Right after I go to the grocery store and get my own. You didn’t think I would eat his chocolate bar, did you? I have scruples 😉

Easy. Buy both for yourself. He has two legs.

HA! He keeps score 😉

The Devil’s Dictionary defines an abstainer as “a weak person who yields to the temptation of denying himself a pleasure”. Well, I’m no weakling, and neither is The Wife…especially after I sneak off to the Laura Secord shop in Winnipeg for a hundred bucks worth of chocolate.
Having said that, when my Fall Sugar Jag begins she needs to stand back. While she’s Count Chocula, I’m the Megalodon of sugary treats when my viking takes the reins. I once ate a box of Hallowe’en chocolate bars in half an hour and asked if there was anything else in the house.

I ate Bob’s crisps today, but went to the shops and bought him some more 😀 xxx I would eat crisps all day if I could………. I would be sick, but it would be worth it! x

I love them, too. Paprika ones in Germany were fab! If ever you come to visit, I’ll have every variety known to Americans. We take junk food seriously here 😉

I really must come to the US! I would love to! I definitely need to, something I will remedy I hope sooner rather than later 🙂 Although I love food, I will just eat and eat!
Paprika crisps, I have had something similar from Lidl (a German import shop)… they are scrummy! x

THOSE ARE THE ONES!!!!
I ♥ those…. *sobs*
August 7th, 2012 at 4:51 PM
I could send some? 🙂

You know the people at customs would confiscate it and eat the whole thing!
August 7th, 2012 at 5:19 PM
Ha ha ha, well if you ever want to risk feeding customs officers, let me know 🙂

Mmmmmm..scruples. They’re especially good with a fried egg and some Tobasco ™ sauce. The green Tobasco(tm).
August 7th, 2012 at 2:46 PM
HAHAHAHA!!! I saw Tabasco mustard today. It looked deadly 😀

LOL about the custom officials eating the goodies. When our son was stationed in Korea, we sent him Gethsemani Monk-made Butter Walnut Bourban fudge. He never got it.

My BIL sent me a beautiful leather purse from Korea. I only know it was beautiful because I saw the pictures he took of it the year her got back..

Soon I shall post a bacon bar that Cruel Wife bought for me. in this case “soon” means tomorrow.
Now that is something I knew I could tempt you with.

If Winston Churchill could end his sentences with a preposition, then so can you 🙂

I like the white chocolate ones! Same with Reeses. I knew you wanted to know.
