I learned something today

Sooo, I like chocolate as much as the next girl. This time of year, there's a LOT of chocolate floating around. It can be very tempting not to just sit down and eat 4 or 5 of those little 'fun' sized bars, easily forgetting about the calories.
I put a few in my drawer, 'just in case'. When my supplier (a coworker) restocked and put some new goodies out to grab, I grabbed - like 6 or 7 of them. Another coworker (and workout buddy) stops me and makes me put all but 2 back.
Later, my workout buddy comes back to my desk for some chit chat, I open my drawer, and BUSTED...she sees that I went back to the supplier and grabbed all the candy she said I could't have! I have probably 10-12 pieces in my drawer, instead of the 4 I was supposed to. hahaha!
But the crazy part is...I don't eat it. I just want to have it.
Today, she was telling the above story, goes to open the drawer to demonstrate and sees that I also have two packs of Little Bites on top of all the candy!
Again, I won't eat it. I just want to have it.
After we laughed until we cried about my closet candy storage habit, I got to thinking. I realized that I hoard candy at home too. I have two stashes in my house. Places where I 'hide' my candy. My kids will ask for it, and even tell me, 'You're not going to eat it!', but I still won't share. I won't eat it, but I won't share either.
I told my workout buddy, that it just makes me feel better to have them. If they are there, then I won't want them so bad. But if I can't have them, then I really, really want one!
So, it's a quirk of mine, I guess. I've exposed it. LOL!!! Weird huh?
