Desperate and Delusional: Me

just a remote


I have been wanting chocolate for hours. All of a sudden, I saw one right on the towels I folded earlier. My heart leapt up. But, it was just my remote.

Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Since I only have $3 to my name until the 1st and that is Friday, I am in conflict about spending $0.75 on candy + the gas to get there. The gauge is almost on empty. I just searched all my coin places where I might find something. Since Saturday, I have not lost or dropped anything.

Do * Not * Try* To * Talk * Me * Down.

Your turn
Maybe if I closed my eyes and just ate the remote? Seriously, out of your peripheral vision and in a not well lighted place, it could be a Hershey bar, right? What was your most desperate want or delusion?

  1. Ouch. Good luck. I suspect I would be seeing what (if anything) I could bake which was loaded with cocoa.

  2. EC,
    I considered that, but instant gratification was on my mind. Besides, baking involves heat and it is still over 80 degrees at 1:30 am. And, then there would be dishes to wash. I may open a chocolate cake mix and make brownies, enduring the heat. . I was very hungry, so I ate my dinner. But, the chocolate desire has not gone away.

    In the past I have gotten 1 Tbsp of Hershey's cocoa powder and 2 Tbsp of powdered sugar and about 2 tsp of butter/margarine, put it all in a cup and microwave in 15 sec intervals, stirring each time until it was of a good consistency. It takes away the chocolate desire. Since I gave up caffeine in Cokes, I rarely have this strong urge. I don't get caffeine because I don't drink coffee and only decaffeinated iced tea. So, this overwhelming chocolate urge is sort of peculiar.

  3. I always think the body "tells us" when it needs something. I would follow that urge. Got a neighbor you can "bum" some chocolate chips from? Just tell em you're short a 1/4 cup for a recipe.

    The doctor has hubby and I on a REALLY restricted diet so I know those overwhelming urges for something. Good Luck!!

  4. Sue,
    My only "neighbor" has voluntarily spoken to me once, and that was the time she came into my yard when people were helping me and told the men not to cut one of my trees. No, I would not go there. The one behind me is behind a fence and owned the evil black chickens that annoyed me in my yard.

    Besides, I think it was midnight when I was craving a chocolate bar and almost ate the remote.

    Both of you on a restricted diet? Well, at least one is not bringing in forbidden stuff.

    I ate four hotdogs in the last hour or so, many more calories and junk than if I had just gone out and gotten the Hershey bar.

    But, I do agree that my body was telling me I needed chocolate!

      I ate too much of other stuff, slept, and went and got me a chocolate bar this morning. I know how to bake brownies, but then I would eat all of them!

  6. Chocolate for sale! The boys are selling chocolate bars for a cadet trip next year. I know- that doesn't help, lol. It's usually chocolate that gets me too. And why does it always have to be late at night? I've done the cake in a cup thing when I was desperate. It's pretty quick, and the microwave doesn't heat up the house.

    1. Wendy,
      You are such a tease! Nope, no help. How can you live with so much chocolate in the house? Thankfully, my kids never sold chocolate. I forgot about the cake in a cup. What was that recipe?

  7. You poor thing. Recently, I craved sea salt. A tiny bit of sugar or honey often relieves a craving. Since Hershey's moved to Mexico, I no longer like their chocolates and grateful as the stuff made me gain weight I sure didn't need.

    1. Sissy, I ate stuff, and nothing helped. Made in Mexico? How did I miss that? Nothing relieves a chocolate craving except chocolate.

  8. You need to keep a Hershey bar in the freezer for emergencies only. It really would have come in handy!

  10. I have six cents until my next check arrives. I can't buy even one square of a Hershey bar.

    Love,

    1. JJ,
      I have $0.74 cents less, but I have a stamp and can mail you three squares. Usually, I at least have gas in the car. I will put in this $2 and change on the way to Wed night dinner. We drove my car to carshop and did not put gas in it. My car has ac, so mine it was.

    2. Mailing three squares made me laugh.

    3. Well, I think one stamp would not mail more. lol

  11. I am not a chocoholic but I used to smoke. If your craving is anything like the urge to smoke I understand! Truly,I could have resorted to depraved behavior to satisify my craving. Heck , I have vague dark memories where I may have done just that!

    1. Janet,
      When I drank caffeine in Coke, I could have killed for chocolate. Now, that strong urge comes seldom. I laughed until I coughed lots and choked. So, maybe we should try to nudge those memories out of the dark recessives of your mind. This is one of the funniest comments I have ever received.

  12. I believe what you need to do is git rid of your TV - absolutely nthn but violence, materialism and sex with some religious programming thrown-in. Thus, that would GREATLY help your budget, girl. I literally threw mine off the balcony, making damn sure there wasn't anyone down below. Seeing as I love Christ, too, so I love you. Ponder that. It's not what we do in our large ego, it's what God did on Calvary. God bless you.
