Dirty Thoughts


Every year I look forward to Easter. You’re probably thinking it’s because of some spiritual reason, like the tomb is empty or something, but no. My reason is shallow and will probably send me to hell.

It’s this bad boy. A Cadbury Egg. Just the sight of it invokes all sorts of sinful thoughts. It has a shape perfect for holding, a creamy center filling, and, when devoured, leaves me with a feeling of complete and utter satisfaction.

And so, here sits my heavenly egg atop a fluffy pedestal and when the sun sets, bringing the cover of darkness, I will take my egg, carefully peel away its shiny exterior, and sink my teeth into its warm, gooey goodness.

Sigh.

They were good until my husband bought a ton! I'm talking boxes and cases full of these eggs!!!! I was so overly excited when we had them so I just started eating them. Then I realized, I can't, I shouldn't eat them just myself so I began to give them away. I got sick of the chocolate so I would just suck the cream out until I would shake from the sugar. The chocolate was thrown away. After months and months of these eggs... I got to sick of them. Now when I see them in the store I want to vomit. Where were you when all these eggs were around??? Oh yeah, you said you didn't want to be tempted with the devil.

I love Halloween candy, but for some reason I can't get into Easter candy. Maybe it's because I'm loaded with Girl Scout cookies by the time it hits?

Don't be mad at me but I have never had one. If it does what you say maybe I'll have to try one this year.

I can only eat one of those a year they are so sweet! But I do love the mini eggs with crunchy shell, nummy!

Liane - a case of these eggs is excessive and just cruel. What kind of monster did you marry? He tarnished something beautiful.

Kimerelee, you said another sinful three words - Girl Scout Cookies. Thin Mints and Mahoo's (however you spell them). I can eat a box in one sitting.

As for Katie, you are banned from my blog. Never tried a Cadburry Egg? For shame. Promptly eat one, take a picture of it in your mouth to prove it, send it to me and you will be invited back. :)

And Ms. Bennett (love saying that), I, too, restrict my egg consumption. They are to be kept sacred and not abused as Liane's monster of a husband has done.

I am completely addicted to these. I feel your pain. I'm like a rampant addict when it comes to seeing them in the stores. I need them - more and more and ALL OF THEM.

Have you noticed how much they've shrunk over the years. Much smaller now. But I still can't get enough!

I'm not liking them as much, the older I get. Maybe because they have shrunk~ And the price climbs. Alana gave me some yesterday, but like Liane, I think Paul ruined it. I had too many from last year's reunion in July. Ha Ha :) I'm on to better things now, such as Lindt truffles. Smooth as butta. :)
