This week Shortmama wants to know how we deal with the temptations of Halloween candy.
Which is perfect since I've been having the hardest time fighting off the devil that is in my kitchen right now.
Here's the crazy part about candy corn. It's gross. It is. But I love it. I need it. I want it. I have to have it. I have to eat each piece like it might bring something different to the palate.
Like, "Oh, does this one taste more orange than the last one?" (because orange has a flavor, ya know?) Or, "If I eat the white part will it taste different than the yellow part? What if I eat the yellow part first?" And don't even get me started on the ones with brown in em. Or the pumpkin ones. Gah!
How do I deal with the temptation? I don't. If I have to have it I have to have it. Eventually I'll eat myself sick on it and will quit eating it.
I said, RIGHT??!!!!
If not I'll look like this:
Yeah right. Like I'd be that cute. If I knew I'd be that cute, I'd definitely keep eating them.
Somebody! Turn me into a candy corn please!!**sighs.** I really thought this temptation thing would be easy. But right now, at this moment, after having eaten a handful or 300 of candy corn...I'm feeling like it's not.
I even tried to be good and eat an orange. Only mistake was that it was right after the candy corn. Have you ever had something sweet right after Diet Coke? It was the same effect. PUCKER city.
So. Besides just throwing them out of the house, which I'm not willing to do because I need to learn moderation damn it!!, what are your ideas??
And keep in mind I need them here for inspiration for Sami's contest.
