Please don’t bring choco-pie into my habitat. I can’t handle it.
The other day, one of my friends said to me, “But why do you have to eat the WHOLE thing? Just have one each day as a treat to yourself.”
No. Sorry. Doesn’t work like that for me.
If I have something I like, I will eat it till it is impossible to eat it anymore….which is when it is gone. “Just a little” = ALL. Does that make me a weak person with no self-control?
Yes. But there’s a better word for it.
Gretchen Rubin (who, by the way, I love and admire, I LOVE YOU!) discusses as: “Abstainer vs. Moderator” — and I am an absolute Abstainer. As G says, “I find it far easier to give something up altogether than to indulge moderately.”
So if you love me, please don’t bring anything chocolate, covered/dipped in chocolate, or anything even remotely chocolate-flavored into my home. I will eat it. All of it. And probably cry.
