A Quick Sweets Update

I am still in a bet with my friend, I still have not had sweets.  He called three times yesterday begging for chew, when I said no, he resorted to trying to get me to eat sweets.  When that didn’t work he explained why I was going to lose the bet, hmmm… not likely.  He’s a trainwreck, this should be an easy victory.

Well, I have a new problem.  One of my friends, Sasha (names have been changed to protect the truly nuts), thinks the bet is dumb.  She is coming over later and is bringing dessert.  SHE DOESN”T EVEN LIKE SWEETS!  She’s doing it just to make it hard on me.  Her and my husband are conspiring and he is now talking about making his famous chocolate soufflé – Really!?  But I will not give in, I will win this bet, I will exercise will power.  Why, because I am stubborn and my dessert toting friend, Sasha, is crazy (said with love).   This isn’t about helping my friend quit chewing anymore.  Now it’s a grudge match.  It’s me against the world.  Am I pointlessly depriving myself of one of my passions?  Maybe.  Am I taking this too far and being over dramatic – absolutely!  But I am having fun and laughing hard and that is more therapeutic than sweets – at least that is what I am telling myself.

One last thought, when the best is over, I am going to face first into anything sweet.  I might even try bacon ice cream that Jen at My Morning Chocolate has been experimenting with.  Or, I might just get an IV of Hershey’s syrup and cut to the chase.

    I know someone that is dying to make Chocolate Chip Cookies. Need I say more.

    Aren’t friends great! They can be really supportive when they want, can’t they!

    I agree with your original post on this. We all do need some vices to keep ourselves sane.

    Still kudos to both of you for trying to kick the habit, even for a little while.

    I’m glad I stumbled on you blog. I like your sense of humor. Good luck with the bet.

      Thanks for your comment. We’re both still going strong on the bet! I just read a few of your blog posts and you’re one busy dad! I think it’s great that you’re writing and will be following your blog!
