As I have said before Hershey’s and I have had an ongoing affair for over 30 years. When Angie and I ventured out on our weight loss journey I finally told Hershey’s it was over. It’s not like we have not had time apart before because we have. Our time apart is usually short lived though because Hershey’s continues to stalk me and I give into it’s seductive temptation. The worst is when I am out in public especially a convenience store or grocery store. It seems like my day will be going great and then I will turn a corner and there they are exposing all of their goodies to me. It is incredibly embarrassing when I can’t resist and fall into temptation right there in public. I feel so shameful hiding the evidence on my way home to my family. This time I am stronger though and I refuse to go back!
So it should not be a surprise to see Hershey’s with someone else. It has happened before I have seen them with men, women and children. They have no preference, I think they take the discrimination thing waaay to far. Then again who am I to judge? However this time is different, it has hit me right in the heart! Yesterday I was at the store with my best diet buddy ever Angie, shopping for healthy stuff of course. I knew Hershey’s was in there I could smell them and I even glanced at their seductive attire as I quickly walked by the isle. As strong I am right now nothing could have prepared me for what was waiting around the corner for me. There they were in all of their chocolaty goodness, wrapped snuggly in the arms of another woman! Usually I am able to contain my disappointment, but this time was the ultimate betrayal. My best diet buddy ever, Angie was standing there caressing Hershey’s and laughing boisterously. Two of my best buddies ever, together being sleazy right the in the middle of the store, in front of me! WWTFF!!! No wonder she is a half bulimic, this has probably been going on for years. I should have paid closer attention to the signs.
