No, no, no, an illicit drug isn't my choice, nor is alcohol or even caffeine. (Speaking of, I splurged on a light latte while running errands yesterday and a glass of red wine last night. That's the first time in seriously two weeks that I've had either of those things!)
Back back to the point: I am not addicted to drugs, alcohol, or caffeine. No, I am addicted to different things entirely.
Let's explore, shall we?
I do, however, try to limit myself to two tablespoons per day. After all, it has 200 calories per two tablespoons, so I don't want to overindulge too much.
I know it's expensive (what vice isn't?) at $5-6 per jar, but give it a try. I promise you won't regret it.
My Camelback BPA-Free eddy Water Bottle
I use this so much that I'm tempted to buy a second one just so that I can be certain one is clean at all times. Since, let's be real: I don't wash this one nearly enough.
Hey, it's good for the immune system, right?
Crystal Light and Mio
I quickly realized that I could get more bang for my buck with MiO. So, I bought a little egg of it and pretty much cart it with me everywhere. It'd be nice if I could figure out a way to just attach it to that aforementioned handy-dandy water bottle.
This is seriously my kryptonite. I have always been an ice cream lover, but a frozen yogurt company that allows you to get as much as you want of whatever flavor you want and then top it with whatever deliciousness you want? I DIE.
I would probably eat this every day if I could.
And The Boy is the same, sadly enough. We have been known to get off the couch, put on real clothes, and drive to Orange Leaf at 9:30 at night. We have no shame.
Candy Crush Saga
My students even know how crazy I am about Candy Crush Saga. One of my little girls even made me read an article about CCS addiction. (Of course I cannot find this article for you now, but just Google "Candy Crush Saga addiction" and find pages upon pages upon pages of articles. At least I'm not alone, right?)
Y'all, it's bad. I am fairly stubborn in that I don't pay for apps, but I will gladly give Candy Crush Saga 99 cents every time I finish an episode, simply because I need for the game to continue. I haven't yet paid for additional lives, but I have figured out that the lives on my various devices don't synch, so I can play five times on my phone, five times on my iPad, and five times on my computer before I am completely out of lives. I told you: pa-thet-ic.
My advice to you? Don't start. Don't. do. it. STAY AWAY!
Or...don't. It's pretty darn entertaining.
