Once I finally got up and moving, I headed over to my sister's place almost 2 hours after I'd originally said I'd be there. And I hate being the type of person who is running *that* late, so of course knowing how late I was also contributed to the black clouds raging over my head.
On the way, I stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few necessities. And by "necessities" I mean comfort food. Things that will make me feel better as soon as I put them in my mouth. Things with absolutely no nutritional value whatsoever. I wish I didn't believe in using food as comfort, but I've been doing it for too many years to stop cold turkey on a day like I was having yesterday.
So I picked up a basket at the store entrance and went on a mission. At the check-out, I had a total of 4 items:
- Bag of Doritos
- Package of Oreos
- Large Hershey's bar with almonds
- Large dark chocolate Hershey's bar
I feel no such compulsion. Do you have something to say to me about my purchases? You don't know what kind of day I've had! Judge not, grocery check-out boy, because you'll probably be buying these same items for your girlfriend in a few years, when she's having one of these days.
I've been half-heartedly telling myself I should try this whole "clean eating" thing that FitGeGe keeps talking about. I'm sure in the long run I'd feel better and be happier with myself. But now we all know that's not going to happen until this package of Oreos is gone. Good thing I should have them polished off by tomorrow.
