Chocolate FAIL, or Why You Shouldn't Go To The Grocery Store When Hungry

{Credit} So I stopped at the grocery store on my way home from work. Always a bad idea. I'm hungry and tired and just want to get home. But I had to get some last minute fixins for our dinner tonight. I grab what I need, turn innocently back up any random aisle towards the checkout lanes. Well this any random aisle just happened to house cereal. Which I love. {Sidenote: if I could, I would eat cereal for breakfast and dinner. Yes, everyday. Maybe Frosted Flakes in the morning with a serving of Lucky Charms for dinner.} So, of course, I pick up a few choice boxes. C'mon, they were on sale!

I continue to the end of the aisle and am faced with candy. All sorts of it. I'm not a candy girl, but a co-worker of mine has this Dove Dark Chocolate (see above pic) that is all sorts of heaven. I see it's on sale {and I'm hungry, remember?} so naturally, I pick up a bag. For my co-workers, of course!
I get to the checkout lane and unload my arms full of assorted dinner necessities along with 3 boxes of cereal and this bag of Dove chocolates. Yes, debit. No, no carryout service. Thankyouverymuch. You too, goodnight. And pretty soon I'm in the safety of my car. Where I decide I have to have one of those chocolates. Just one little piece. So I drive and enjoy. So sue me!
Hubs is home when I get there and follows me into the kitchen. I tell him what I purchased and start to put the items away. He asks if I already broke into the chocolate stash. NO, who would do that? Like I don't have any self control! They are totally for my co-workers, honey. At which point I realize he's staring at my backside with a bemused look on his face.
Then why do you have melted chocolate on your butt?
FAIL

But, I tell you what, that piece of chocolate was worth it. And it was dark chocolate, which, like wine, has many health benefits. Mmmm, wine and chocolate. Maybe I'll just skip dinner tonight altogether!

Oh, I've totally done this too - both the picking up candy for my co-workers & the accidentally sitting on some and finding it melted on me. We're just the very pictures of grace and coordination, aren't we? ;-)

Sweetie, you're hilarious. Found your blog through Life Goes On, I Think (the I Think part is part of the title, it's not me being uncertain, I swear). I say eat chocolate whenever you damn well please. Heck, I say eat and drink whenever you damn well please (just don't do it on a park bench at 1 a.m. with seven friends and a rowdy labrador and a cop cruise across the street). Anyhooz, keep up the great blogging.
