Today's God Wink

This morning i was out of my automatic breakfast, as Dr. Oz calls it. My initial thought was I could go through McDonald's on my way to work and get a sausage burrito, a treat. More than I usually have for breakfast but just a little more than 300 calories. I had stopped at the post office to get the mail and with the store in front of me had a craving for chocolate milk and those coconut crumb mini donoughts. I had rationalized it in my mind that it would be faster to just stop at the store, plus they had my breakfast bars there so I could get that instead of the doughnuts. As I was headed in I was torn between the doughnuts and the bar. I knew if i bought both I would eat both. Hmmm, what to do. I walked in picked up breakfast bars for the rest of the week, well they only had 2 left and I needed 3. I got the chocolate milk and on my way to the doughnuts found the banana's, the other half of my automatic breakfast. I got a banana, I have more at home for the rest of the week. And got the doughnuts. I had to wait at the register for the cashier. As she started to ring up my purchases I ran my debit card. I decided I would get cash back today, which I never do, just to have some cash on me so I didn't have to use my car for every dollar. When the cashier rang up the total we both looked at each other in fear when she said $6.66. Oh no, someone is trying to tell me something!! Suddenly she finished the transaction and upon adding my cash back we were much more satisfied with the total of $26.66. I didn't eat the doughnuts, I believe they're cursed. I did drink the chocolate milk, only looking at the calories afterward, the milk by itself 380 calories. I should have just stopped at McDonald's for the ltitle burrito. Argh! I mean, Thank You God!
