Food Fancy

Yesterday, I tried talking myself out of a chili dog all day long. I had lots of excuses for myself.

I didn't have any chili.

I didn't want to go to WalMart.

I only wanted the expensive chili anyway and I didn't want to spend the money.

At ten o clock, I found that I could no longer deny myself...


The no-bean chili dog, smothered in cheese with a toasted bun had become irresistible and I didn't just want one...I NEEDED ONE!

So I went out into the dorm to find a WalMart buddy......CHECK

I drove all the way to WalMart.....CHECK

I picked up my no-bean chili (yes it was expensive).....CHECK

And that's when things went wrong. Jesse wanted pizza (because there was NO way I was sharing my chili). So I went down the pizza isle

Grabbed a pizza.....CHECK

On my way to the register I had to follow the rest of the frozen food isle to the center of the store...well guess what else you find in the frozen food isle....


But I didn't want just any ice cream....I wanted Ben and Jerry's Karamel Sutra...It is as sinful as it sounds! Chocolate on one side, vanilla on the other with a caramel center!!!! YUM!

It was also expensive...but I NEEDED it...and my WalMart buddy reminded me that I had an excuse, which may or may not have been legitimate, but we went with it!

I was so excited to come home to eat a chili dog and dig into my ice cream that I could barely stand the long car ride back to good old Anderson.

But as soon as I walked in the door....

I found that I was no longer hungry

....for ANYTHING.

All I wanted was a glass of water.

And that, my friends, is the story of my life.
