Tossin' and Turnin'

I tried to go to sleep a while ago, and I couldn't.

I decided to come out here to the computer, after about a half hour of 'tossin' and turnin'.

That's when the stupid hit. 

They were calling me.  Staring at me.

The open bag of Tostitos Chips. 

(Okay, not open, but previously opened and only secured with a clip.)

1/3 of a bag left... and yet... they called so loud. 

'You know you want some of us... go ahead... just a few...'

'Get the salsa... it's just in the pantry', they nudged. 

That was all the coercion I needed.

I am so weak.

The empty bag is in the garbage, so it can't mock me, and the 1/2 jar of salsa in the fridge.

I think I can hear it's muffled 'Bwahahaha!' of triumph through the door.

Ugh.  Whenever I do sleep, I am so going to have heartburn. 

Catch you tomorrow, with the complete weekend update!

be well,
Dawn

It's not just me that hears food talking then? Even worse, I can hear bottles of wine and yesterday, a pack of cigarettes, even though I gave up at New Year. I find it odd I can be sooo stubborn and yet sooooo weak!

My fav. is the Lime chips, with picante salsa, and guacomole! For some reason when I eat the chips with the guacamole I don't get heartburn. But then again not everyone likes it LOL!! (Hugs) Indigo

I hope you didn't have heartburn! Hey, I think salsa and chips are GOOD for you. There's vegetables involved here.

I couldn't go to sleep either last night; but I was too lazy to go downstairs to the computer; so I just lay there trying to go to sleep between my husband's snores, and my youngest kicking me in the head, it was a sleepless night!  (YAWN)  Where is the coffee?  Must get coffee!  Julie ;)  Don't feel bad---you could have been drinking vodka or tubs of ice cream--that would have been worse.  :)

Sorry you couldn't sleep, know that feeling well but now I keep a Suduko Puzzle book and nice sharpe pencil with an eraser next to my bed, that's working well for the time being.  Yea, that pink stuff is what I would need too if I indulged, but what the heck, if it made you feel better or worked good for you.  Must say I loved this post, very creative.

Blessings to you,

  Mmm, chips and salsa. I stopped buying the chips because I can go through an entire bag of chips and half a large jar of salsa in less than thirty minutes.  And that stuff goes straight to your hips, you know. Well, in my case it's straight to my gut...and my double chin...and that's just not good.

"previously opened and only secured with a clip" qualifies as "opened." And luring.  And definitely mocking.  "Only secured with a clip" means it can be considered "an attractive nuisance," and therefore, you are oliberated of all responsibility for your actions.  Go in peace and with blessing, my child.
