Too True Tuesday

Yep, I know you’ve been anxiously waiting for this post. Essie over at the Accidental Mommy has thrown out the gauntlet again this week to ‘fess up to our secret indulgences…those things you would give up everything except chocolate to have. In fact, in order to keep these two things, I’d seriously consider going to boot camp.

Diet Pepsi. I was never a coffee drinker, but in college, developed a strong addiction to soft drinks. Then, I went to work for Frito-Lay for 5 years. The result, I simply cannot live without Diet Pepsi. When we went to Guatemala to pick up the boys, I had to subsist on Diet Coke. I lived…barely. Our trips to Canada and Sweden introduced me to Pepsi Light. I’m just hoping that if we troop off to Egypt next year that they, too, will have unlimited sugar-free Pepsi products for my consumption. If not…well, I won’t NOT go, but I’ll be grouchy until I get my hands around an ice cold can…

The next is books. Books, books, more books. Yes, it’s true, I have heard that there are places they call libraries where I can pick up books to read for free. And I do…but honestly, they never have the exact titles I want when I want them. B&N.com, Amazon.com…one click of the mouse and voila, I can have books sent to the house. Even better, e-books. One click of the mouse and “poof”, they are right there for my eager eyes to devour.

Heaven is a Diet Pepsi and a book.

What about you? What’s your secret indulgence? ‘Fess up, you know you want to.

    Yes! I seriously considered putting down books, because I am an ADDICT (we even have an entire bedroom that is converted to a "library"). My hubby doesn't get it, thinks libraries are just as good..he doesn't understand. There's something about having MY OWN COPY that's the same one I've read, and I can just go in and pick up whatever I want when I want it…mmmm….

    In theory if it was starving or books, I could probably deal with the library. But I hope to never learn the truth of that outcome…

    Mmmm, yep, I think when I was super poor and HAD to use the library, well it turned out I was just not a responsible enough adult for them. I kept losing my card and forgetting the books. Then I had to pay an enormous fine and buy another card…. forget it. I love Amazon anyway. CLICK! DONE!

    I don't understand the diet soda thing though. Seems to be a nationwide addiction now that I am reading everyones stuff. Maybe you should start a movement!
