tonight, while lee and i were dining on the B.E.S.T. pasta on the face of this earth** (no seriously, we might have it tomorrow for dinner, too.)
**its SO good, we don't eat it with sauce. just a drizzle of evoo... that's it. no salt. no pepper. no sauce. no cheese. just the plain pasta. (they sell it at costco, too for all you costco lovers out there!)
i looked over to see that lee had opened a can of... oh no, don't say it...
caffeine free coke.
oh, i wanted it so bad. water suddenly seemed so... well, watery.
i asked him... ever so politely... if i could have 1 sip.
he replies, "no... because then you'll want the whole thing"
he was right...except him telling me that made me want it EVEN WORSE... oh, hurry up already--change your mind and pass that can over here... i just want ONNNNNNNNNE SIP.
[insert noise of a slow "enjoy every morsel" sort of slurping noise]
gross. disgusting. way too sweet. here ya go. [handing it back to him]
it didn't taste the way i'd remembered it a few short weeks ago. it tasted so..... wrong.
i've scribbled through that one on the "treats and splurges" list... not worth it and no longer tastes good.
