The last few potato chips in the bag. An open can of cashews on the counter. Stumbling across a Snickers bar two hours before dinner.
We’re talking about the kind of stuff that sucks all the oxygen out of the room. The things that have almost a magnetic pull, drawing me to them, calling my name until I finally cave.
These are evil. Pure eeeevil.
White cheddar cheese popcorn. omg, what kind of devilry is this?! The first bite is shocking, the second mouth wateringly delicious. Before I blink twice I’m eating this stuff by the handful and have to force myself to stop after inhaling half a bag.
White cheddar cheese curls. Okay, come on. Is everything covered in this white powdery goodness completely addictive?
Lularoe leggings. Sweet pumpernickel, there are no words. Sista-friend introduced me to these and I was immediately sold. I mean, who doesn’t want a pair of leggings that make you feel like Flo Jo? I own two pairs now, and when I wear them I spend the whole day running my hand down my thigh. I’m certain I must be raising eyebrows around town but damn, it’s magic.
Black Friday sales. Okay, now that these have gone online I’m in a world of trouble. My hard and fast rule of not shopping for myself the month before Christmas flies right out the window when I see something I really really want marked down 50% or more. Over the last five years or so our Black Friday scores have included a vacuum, travel gear, lamps, and some really nice sheets.
Salty snacks. I used to be all about the sweets. Cakes, cookies, chocolate – all were my kryptonite. Lately, though, it’s the tang of salt I crave. Pringles, potato chips and dip, cheesy fries, tortilla chips, salsa, and peanuts all call to me like a homing beacon. ‘Tis the season for a good cheese ball with Wheat Thins, and I can chow down on that mess all day long.
Decadent appetizers. Nothing pulls me down as fast as seeing “cheese fries” on a menu. Texas Roadhouse has them down to an art – giant steak fries seasoned with some mystery salty goodness, tons of melted cheese, and bacon crumbled over the top with ranch dressing for dipping. Mmmmm…..
