My creative wisecracker brother and his minions (youngest kids) created this hilarious personalized Zombie Circus Peanut meme just for me. I'm honored and I miss you too (circus peanuts and kids). Sometime after Thanksgiving, we shall sit down together with a bag of fresh circus peanuts and we'll party, just like the pilgrims. I’m just on a detox, I’m not in locked-away camp.
I don’t even like to be around people who’ve sworn off sugar. It’s probably how some people feel around me since I don’t drink or use. But sugar!? Aww come on now. Live a little, Tense Person. However if sugar is killing you, then I support your every abstinent moment.
I definitely don’t want to be an anti-sugar advocate, I’m simply sharing my journey about trying to leave it behind for a bit. As it turns out, not only has my attempt been fairly entertaining (to me at least), many can relate to the love/hate affair of the most prevalent of all the white powders.
My boyfriend told me food is a very emotional subject. That’s true and “food” should be included on the list of things not to discuss with people. If you’re refraining from sugar, It’s probably best to come up with a response locked and loaded when people try to get you to cross over to the White Side. Some of my friends who don’t drink respond with“I’m allergic, I break out in felonies”. Misdemeanors in my case.
A acquaintance of mine overhead me telling a friend that I’m not “doing” sugar. She butted in like she was trying to save my life, “What are you using instead!?”. Stevia, I said. “No! You can’t use stevia. You have to use honey”. If I had stevia in my purse, I would have done a shot right in front of her big head.
