You know, the first step is admitting you have a problem…

I just had the oddest experience. I was walking down the hall at work when I caught myself thinking about something.

No, that part’s not the “odd part”. The odd part was what I was thinking about.

I was thinking about peanut butter. Specifically, I was thinking about “Smucker’s All Natural Smooth Peanut Butter with Honey”.

I have an almost uncontrollable addiction to nut butters. I love them. I eat them on Triscuits. I spread them on whole wheat bread. I eat them on bananas. I have absolutely no ability to moderate my intake of any particular nut butter. It gets worse when it’s almond butter. I daresay I could polish off an entire jar of almond butter in one sitting and not blink twice.

So there I was, walking down the hall at work thinking, “boy, I can’t wait to get home tonight and eat some peanut butter on some Triscuits”.

What the hell is wrong with me?

I don’t know, but I guarantee, whatever it is, it can be fixed by spreading a little peanut butter on it.

  1. This is going to be a strange comment, but I don’t really care. I was just telling my husband how much I enjoy reading your blog, and that this simple little post makes me happy. I read it to him out loud, having warned him that it was really about nothing and wouldn’t be exciting, but that I was reading it to him anyway. As I was reading it, I realized one of the reasons why I love reading your stuff. It’s all about the punctuation! Crazy, but I’m serious. I’m so tired of reading blogs by some of the people I know and they can’t use punctuation, grammar or spelling beyond the level of their seemingly 5th grade minds. I’m a bit obsessive about it, though I know I make LOTS of mistakes with it myself. But reading your post aloud, I realized your commas are perfectly placed. Ok, so besides that, I think you’ve got some pretty inspiring, positive stuff to say. But damn, I love your punctuation 🙂

  2. That’s why I keep 1 jar of almond butter at home, and another at work! Never tried it on Triscuits, though. Whole wheat english muffins or granny smith apples are my usual platform. Damn! I need to go to Costco *right now* and buy some more!
