Maybe you don’t have a sweet tooth. Maybe you like salty or savory flavors best. You’re an enigma to me.
I’ve got such an appreciation for buttery, chocolatey, gooey, fruity, flakey treats that I deserve a medal in Self-Control for my ability to limit my intake. Seriously, if you liked sweets as much as I like sweets, you’d give yourself some boundaries, too.
In fact, the boundaries makes desserts taste even better. When I have ice cream for breakfast, donuts for lunch and cookies for dinner, I’m kinda over it by noon. But if I have ice cream once a week or a donut on a sunny day off, then every bite gets savored because it’s magically enhanced by its exclusivity.
So, no, most of the time I don’t eat dessert after dinner. My daily dessert tends to look more like this:
Don’t feel sorry for me. I love those gummy vitamins!
But seriously, once upon a time I dubbed myself the Cookie Monster. Today I’m thankful to have graduated beyond the realm of Sesame Street personalities and into whatever realm keeps me fitting my jeans.
