I’m convinced they were created by the devil. For me, they are irresistible. Of course, I passed up the huge bag for $10. I told myself, I could never eat that many. Instead, I’ll probably buy a dozen regular bags. I opened a bag today—that was a mistake. I do better if I buy the little tiny bags (like Halloween size), because once I dump a bag in a bowl, it doesn’t take long to devour the whole thing.
I’ve told myself when the bag is gone, no more. But, who am I kidding—yeah, I know. So, I’ve been writing for the last few days and candy is a bad thing to have loose when I’m on a roll. I find my fingers flying over the keyboard and then taking a little break to pop a pastel colored egg, or two, or twelve.
Since retiring, I’ve had much less stress and therefore much less chocolate. I resisted Valentine’s candy and haven’t snacked on chocolate for months, but the temptation was too great yesterday. I’m about five major scenes away from being done with my second novel and hope the bag will last me. I wonder if the folks at Cadbury have a 12-step program…
So, tell me what you think about the Cadbury confection. Are you addicted to any special Easter treat? Better yet, write and tell me how to stop eating them.
