It was all too easy. I was supposed to visualize the big man with the germs reaching for the shortbread and I wouldn't eat free food.
I was at a buffet tonight, and I thought, what harm could a celery stick do... and then four more celery sticks... and then some carrot sticks... and then, engaged in a conversation and losing focus as I was sliding down the slippery slope, I had a biscotti, and then another... followed by about three pieces of pita bread... to be finished off with a few handfuls of potato chips. Ick!!!
If I had just thought of the big man with the germs before I ate that first celery stick.
Tomorrow will be a better day.
