An Effort

Yes, in an effort to post, I'm typing furiously til my husband is ready for bed. Ok, so I'm not typing so furiously, but I'm trying. I don't have much to talk about tonight. Eh, that's probably not true. I'm sure I could find a thousand topics. My problem is, and has always been, choosing one thing. Back in high school, during lunch, purfiktgurl and I would sometimes visit the local corner store looking for a chocolate fix. (For those of you who read purfiktgurl, you'll realize her addiction for chocolate has just always been.) Anyway, every time, without fail, I would stand in front of the candy counter trying to decide what to buy. She would have already paid for her stuff and I would still be standing there, our lunchtime quickly ticking away. At the last minute I would grab something, (pay for it, of course) and run out. What was my point again? Oh yeah, I've never been the decisive type. I've always either made a last minute spontaneous decision or I relied on my tried and true friends. Thankfully I've also never been a crowd follower or eager for popularity.

Times have changed and I've matured (hopefully). Now I have no choice but to think ahead (at least for my son's sake) and make informed, logical decisions. Guess that makes me an adult now??

Sheesh! Do I totally identify with Purfiktgurl! LOL. Being addicted to chocolate is the PITTS! Good thing you've never been a follower either. I'm not either. I admire people like that. :)

Perhaps, was it too many choices? I found myself in those situations, as I got into college and was like, "Do I buy Tampax or Kotex? Gain or Tide? Etc." My friends would be like, "Tiff, just get one and let's go!" Mind you they had the cheap-break-you-out-crap in their Walmart buggy. I was always the girl riding to outtings, quietly. Why? I was in deep thought as to what I was going to buy, order, eat, etc. as to not "hold" them heifers up.

Oh, BTW, I, like you always have a hard time deciding "what" to write about. Seems like some essay writers are emerging? Cute post...may have to "jack" you for somethin' similiar *smile*.

@Dayrell - Don't worry, girl, there is absolutely nothing wrong with being addicted to chocolate. I've been for years and only recently has it waned.

@Tiff - Definitely too many good options. I should add too that on some occassions I didn't buy anything at all. That's similar to my blogging experience. Sometimes I'll log in and want to start writing only to end up logging out without having written anything.

I feel you on being 'quiet'. I still do that.

ya - the addiction is still strong. i will try other say, desserts that aren't chocolate - but in the end, i always know that chocolate will be the best!

i too have a problem with choices - when it comes to creativity. i'll think of one idea - decide to do it, but then something else (and something else, etc.) will come into my head - and then i'm torn. bad thing is, it happens that i'll have started doing something, then change my mind and not like it, because i thought of something 'better'. and i end up not completing anything.
