For Christmas, I received a bag of Coconut M&M's in my stocking. It's just my kind of stocking stuffer.
I placed them in the cabinet to the right of my fridge. This is where I stash all the simple sugars I don't plan on sharing.
Don't tell the munchkins.
Anyhow, because I had a surplus of sweets hidden in my cabinet post Christmas, I forgot I had the M&M's. Well, I forgot until I found them on Monday.
And so I opened the bag and ate a few.
And then a few more.
This may have happened a few times Monday, I can't be certain of how many exactly.
On Tuesday, after lunch I grabbed another handful. They were so satisfying I helped myself to some more.
This morning, I decided a quick handful before errands would do no harm. And so I took some. And then I discovered the reality of what had transpired in forty eight short hours.
I ate the whole bag.
