We all have our weaknesses


Today was a great day.  Was it because the doctor said I've healed perfectly and I don't have to see him again for a year?  No.  Was it because the kids are all registered for school, which starts Wednesday?  No.  Was it because after the coldest summer on record we finally had a warm day?  Or because I can finally drive a car and escape my prison house again?

No, what makes this a great day is the fact that I found my absolute favorite candy in a store.  Chocolate-covered Altoids.  Have you tried them?  I keep a tin in my purse and eat one on very special occasions, like when I'm bored waiting for my kids to get out of ballet class.

When they were first introduced, they were everywhere - checkout lines at Target, candy sections of drugstores.  But no more.  The hunt can take weeks.  Today I asked at a grocery store and the bag boy went all over the place looking for them.  "Do you want more than one?"

"No thanks," said I, "I like to live on the edge."

Now it's your turn to confess - is there one special little treat that you would go out of your way to find?

Those Altoids look really good. You're brave! I totally would have stocked up!

So glad you're feeling much better!

I'll have to think about what my special go-out-of-my-way-to find treat is. Nothing immediately comes to mind, but I'm really bad at pop quizzes. If I remember, I'll be back.

Those look amazingly addictive. My secret passion?

Lamb biryani.

Laugh. Go ahead.

I am ridiculously addicted to Ice Cubes gum. Not everybody carries it. I have been known to drive to the drug store just to buy it.

Hello - never mind the Altoids. I'm so glad you had good news from your doctor. Hope you continue to get better.
