Cold SNAP!

There's a strange thing happening out here in ol' North Bend. I think people call it acclimating. I walk out in the mornings, into this wild cold-snap, where "warm" temperatures of 3o degrees are apparently laughable, and watch the patterns of my breathing trace thought bubbles in the sky. My fingertips looked ruddy and chapped, matching my lips, but there is something about that slap of icy air that keeps me coming back for more. I think I kind of like it.

ALSO: Pay no mind to the small vermillion stick in my freeze-dried fingers. It is most certainly not anything that rhymes with "dead ticklish" and even more certainly not something completely devoid of all nutritional value. It's probably just a stick, and a trick of the winter lighting making it appear reddish because I would never be caught with a guilty secret stash of licorice hidden behind the rice cakes and nutella that BC doesn't even know about and that I would sneak in the solitude of bachloretteish afternoons (if, of course, such a thing even existed). So keep moving, nothing more to see here.

2 licorice twists have 80 calories, virtually no fat, 0.5 g protein and 9.5 g sugar.

1 tablespoon of Nutella has 100 calories, 6 g fat, 1 g protein and 11 grams of sugar.

Looks like a toss up to me!

Enjoy your treat!

(I'm still rather ticked at Nutella. I believed all of their commercials about how healthy Nutella is only to find out that sugar is the first ingredient. Humph.)

What????? 0.5g protein? Well... maybe I should start hiding the Nutella behind the licorice! And yes, I was first introduced to Nutella as a "substitute" for peanut butter (more like a sub for chocolate syrup!)!

And MLJ, GGS, you're perfect behavior has been recorded and I may call upon you again in the future for further acts of my own delusion!
