2 In Thoughts & Observations

You Only Go Around Once (Or Do You?)

I’ve been a naughty, naughty girl tonight….

No, I haven’t been buying hot and steamy books on Amazon or iTunes.  I’ve got that on tap for later…after I finish my blog and get a few scenes knocked out for book two in my Eden series (Healing Eden).

No, what I’m talking about is far worse than any erotic romance and guaranteed to send my blood sugar into the stratosphere.

Yep.  That’s FOUR pieces of cheese cake.

Did I eat it all?  Nah, I just grazed.  Here’s the after picture.

And before you chastise me about healthy eating:

a) I did time on the stationary bike.

b) I did an extra fifteen minutes of pushups and crunchies right after that.

c) Had Mahi Mahi for dinner.

Granted, the two glasses of Troublemaker red wine (a delightful red blend I HIGHLY recommend) might have had something to do with the impulsive rush to the Cheesecake Factory…but who cares?  The fact of the matter is, I may very well be hit by a bus tomorrow.  Or the doc may tell me my dessert eating days are over and I must eat nothing but salad until they bury me under six feet of dirt and concrete.

Either way, I’ll have my cheesecake buffet to remember–not to mention the hilarious story of how the Cheesecake Factory worker’s jaw damn near hit the floor when little ‘ole me ordered four pieces of dessert.  Sometimes you just gotta give folks something to talk about.

In a word–Priceless.

When was the last time you did something completely irrational and spontaneous?  Are you due for a little, “Oh my God…I can’t believe I just did that”?  Does anything crazy appeal to you right this second?  What would you do if someone gave you a free pass for one night?

    I once slapped my hubby’s best friend’s ass. Totally out of character for me. The several glasses of wine might have played a role in that one. Yep, it’s good to have a scapegoat.

    Yikes. Strikes me that full disclosure here might not be the best idea. So I’ll go with…hitchhiking into Seattle and spending the evening at a sushi bar, speaking in an unidentifiable European accent.
