This is why I don't allow myself to go grocery shopping

The other day I went to the grocery store to get some ingredients to make cookies. And by get ingredients I mean pick up a package of pre-made cookie dough. I don't have the time to make homemade cookies. Or the patience.

Ok, so there I am with two big tubs* of cookie dough and a bunch of other random crap I really needed** and I notice this display at the end of my aisle.

These displays were created for people like me. The spontaneous/impulsive shopper. Yes, my arms might be full of groceries, but I will put them down to go back and pick up two large packages of Skittles and NEW Gummy Starbursts. That's right, I said NEW Gummy Starbursts. New products are my favorite. And they were gummies. I heart gummy candies.

I am also the type of person that gets in their car and opens up the delectable treat they just bought. I was half way through the package of my NEW Gummy Starbursts by the time I made the 0.5 mile drive back home. And you know what, they were delicious.

*I know you are wondering why I bought two tubs of cookie dough. And that answer is quite simple. One for the party I was attending that night and one just for me. Naturally.

**Spaghetti, cereal and bread count as necessities. It's pretty much all I eat. Well, that and raw cookie dough.

I remember the days when I could eat anything that I wanted and not affect my body mass index. Enjoy it while you can.

Yes I am also a sucker, today in fact I got lured in by the 4 for $5 on pringles!

Albertson's has online shopping available. I think you pay a fee of $6, and put an order online, and then you can pick it up the next day. I'm always tempted to do this for convenience but I'm afraid that it may not be a lot different from online dating. We all know that vegatable pictures look waaaaaaaaayyy better than the vegtables that would show up in your bag. You know they'd be dropping in the ones that people aren't picking up themselves.

Dad, why you gotta ruin it?
