Three Prunes and a Peanut Butter Cookie
This morning I began my digestive day with three prunes, Sunsweet to be specific. They are actually very tasty but it makes me feel old to be eating prunes on purpose. I always thought prunes were one of those dietary items destined to be disguised in some kind of combo dish. That way you obtained the benefits of all their anti-oxidants and vitamins without being aware of what you were actually eating.
But no. These days I know I need to eat my prunes and therefore, I just down a few (hard core /commando) with a cup of tea.
Ah, but then I decided to just go crazy and followed up the prunes with a gourmet peanut butter cookie from The Cookie Shoppe. Wowzer! What a rush.
I am pretty sure I will be able to run on the sugar high until sometime next week. Of course the sheer size of that one cookie (somewhere between a pancake and a dinner platter) explains the hit to the old bloodstream.
But there is a wonderful benefit to this super-sized lip-smacker, I can bat my eyes and innocently proclaim, "But I only ate just one."
Ahhhh, I think I will go run around the block first, then scrub down the sidewalks, vacuum the garage, sweep the street, weed the south forty by hand, and then whip a dozen souffle's for the neighbors.
That ought'a do it. Just in case you are wondering, I typed this little missive at approximately 120 words per minute. Shoot, I could have written War and Peace in two hours if I had eaten two of those peanut butter cookies. Yowzer!
I'm tellin' ya, John Denver and his measly Rocky Mountain High had nothing on me. I am on a Peanut Butter Pinnacle here - so there!
Hope your day runs along nicely, too. But if you are feeling a little sluggish, you might want to try munching down a peanut butter cookie the size of Texas. It will fix you right up!
Until next time ... Marsha
