My Secret Boyfriend: Mr. Reese's Peanut Butter Cup

We're nearly there. Tomorrow is candy gorge-day. I'm not worried. I can handle it. I'm a professional. Except for my one clandestine affair with a certain someone I'm not sure I can give up.

The thing is, I've kind of lost my all or nothing candy-binge persona. I'm just not that into it anymore. It could be my Gladiator Diet kicking in. Even though I don't follow it religiously, I've noticed I don't have cravings for sweets and caffeine the way I used to, which means my blood sugar is pretty even.

But the lack of craving won't stop me from hooking up with my secret boyfriend, Mr. Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, an annual tradition that I've come to accept and to love.

I rarely buy a candy bar in real life, and I don't care much for hard candy. The only thing that tempts me at the checkout counter is Altoids Gum (curiously strong!) and People Magazine when George Clooney's on the front. And buying a candy bar out of a vending machine? Nope. I don't run into many vending machines working at home, thank goodness.

Mr. Reese's Peanut Butter Cup (RPBC for short) and I usually carry on our love affair at Halloween and Christmas only. We look forward to it. We're like secret lovers, pining for each other until the autumn and winter of each year.

I love Mr. RBPC. I like to think he loves me too. But if I listen to my body, she says "you're going to regret this in the morning." If I listen to Dear Abby, I can hear her voice of reason asking "are you better off with him, or without him?"

These are tough questions. I'll think about them today when I go running, and then I'll meet Mr. RPBC tomorrow and ask him what he thinks.

I'll say "Darling, I love you, but I know you're not very good for me. Should we stop meeting like this? Should I eat you, or give you away?"

What do you think he'll say?

(By the way, this is not a picture of me, although I wish it was because this girl is a cutie pie and oh how I wish I could hug Mr. RPBC in person. I found it on schneezles718 webshots!)

I had a date with two guys last night in preparation for Halloween - Ben and Jerry. I made a 10:30pm Safeway run. Yum!

Oh my god, Mr. Reese's is cheating on me! (I knew it was too good to last . . .)

Happy Halloween ;)
