There. I’ve admitted it. I can’t believe it’s true but I am unable to stop eating Cheez-Its. Pathetic.
This shocks me considering all throughout my childhood, I avoided fake cheese-based products like the plague. They made me pretty sick, actually. Cheez-It crackers, Goldfish, the cheese bread from Sizzler… all of them made me gag just a little.
But tastes change, I suppose, because one day (it was a 4th of July, to be exact) some years ago, my friend Christy brought a box of these little suckers with her to the firework festivities at our “golden” spot under the I-5 bridge in the U-District. From that day forward I have loved them–a little too much it seems.
Warren caught me shoveling them into my mouth as I hid in the pantry (lest he see me devouring his supposed snack without him) and asked what I was doing. I confessed that I couldn’t stop eating them. Intervention was needed. He heartily agreed to stop me if he saw me. He is now my official Cheez-It police. Weaning, of course, is a work in progress…
What goodies are you sneaking in the pantry?
