my husband and I were in the bakery isle in the supermarket, looking at
birthday cakes for my son’s birthday when we passed a rack of Hostess’s
chocolate covered donuts, which reminded us of another brand that makes a very
similar product, which I saw on a list of the most fattening foods ever. The
article said that the donuts were up there with Big Macs and such in terms of
saturated fat content per serving.
husband and I talked about how
delicious the donuts were, even though I knew that they were more delicious in
memory than in real life. We stood in the isle holding the package and admiring
them, reminiscing about a time when it was normal to just throw them into the
grocery cart, when a woman walked by and said, “You cannot eat that, you will
die.” She said it with some humor. Then her husband came over and said, “Just
get it, eat the whole package. Live!”
went on to say “That’s all my mother ever ate, those and Reese’s Peanut Butter
Cups, and she lived to be 93. She dies with a smile on her face watching Two
and a Half Men. She loved sugar, TV, and animals. I had a Doberman and there
was a Retriever, those dogs never sat still for anything, but when they were
with her they just sat still staring at the TV, watching Dr Phil with her.
She’d give them the donuts. She’d tell me ‘You don’t know shit. It’s good for
them.’ That’s all she ate. She had a good life. Lived to 93, died with a smile
on her face.”
four of us were smiling. We had already put the donuts back. We never had any
intention of buying them. If we wanted to get something rich and decadent and
sweet, which we do all the time, it would be something different than those
donuts, probably. Ya never know. Ah, divine decadence!
Update: I just about made it to my dress goal, truly divine decadence, so thank
you all who chipped in, for the wonderful luxury you gave so generously to me.
I have not forgot about you, I am just catching my breath. I will be contacting you with benefits and a photo shortly! Also, I stopped
eating truffles everyday!
of divine decadence, one of the most glorious song clips I can think of, an all
time favorite that does not change with time
