Oh. Oh. Someone Please Shoot Me Now


If you haven't read my last post, go read that now and then come back to this one.

Ahhhhhh...... the ice cream. I decided to heed all of your excellent advice and treat myself once a week to a small portion of my favorite goody. The ice cream I love comes in three sizes: mini, regular and jumbo.

Fast forward to this evening- my husband wanted to grab dinner real quick, and after-wards he wanted ice cream. So on we went. I decided that I would start my once weekly treat tonight and therefore not allow myself to go back before next Thursday.

Guy at ice cream counter -"What can I get for you?"
Me- "One mini mint chocolate chip concrete please"
Ice cream Nazi in the background- "What!? Only a mini? Not a jumbo?"
Me- (Trying to cover my a$$ in front of my husband) "No, I don't have my boys with me tonight, it's just me eating it" (which is the truth, but still!)
Ice cream Nazi- "One mini mint chocolate chip concrete!"
Me- "Thanks!"
Ice cream Nazi- "See you tomorrow!"

No she did-ent.

Just shoot me.

not going to lie - that made me laugh a little but only because i can imagine that happening - to me!

In all seriousness though, I know how you feel. I have gone through several months of eating ice cream almost every day - sometimes even more than once. There was a very difficult period this summer where I actually would look up the 'flavor of the day' at Culvers for every restaurant between work and my house - and would stop several times for a cone if there was more than one flavor I liked. UGH!

I don't think there's anything wrong with having a treat as long as it doesn't derail your plans or goals.
