The Measuring Cup & the Disappearing Phone

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

I have always guffawed at the idea of 1/2 cup of ice cream.
"Please," I would smirk, "I lick that much off the spoon!"
Today I actually took a measuring cup, filled it with B & J's Strawberry Cheesecake.
Wow! 1/2 cup is plenty!
I used to eat the WHOLE pint.
So, when I snack on high calorie treats, I will measure out a portion & put the rest far, far away.
What does my missing phone have to do with ice cream?
I found it in the freezer!
Not really, but I did look for it in there.
It has vanished from the face of the earth & I never took it out of the house.
Honestly, I looked in every trash can, drawer, cabinet, closet, even the oven.
I kept calling myself with the other cell phone & never heard it ring.
Most people wouldn't care that much- it was an OLD Nokia. It was so old it wouldn't even download ring tones, didn't fold, didn't take pictures or videos- nothing.
But, I would brag that I didn't need a fancy phone & pull out my dinosaur.
It did all I needed it to do.
Now I'm on my way to "upgrade."
Maybe a new 3G iPhone.
Just kidding.

    Did you check in the cracks of the couch, I find so many things in there sometimes. And I know, oh so well about the ice cream, I don't even have it in the house, otherwise, I have my portion and calls to me, I can hear it from the back of the freezer. Never sticks around long.

    I'm with you.......Believe-it. Sometimes (within reason) we just have to eat what we're craving.

    Thanks for the laughs Sisterjack. Once you get used to it, 1/2 cup is enough. After all, it's not like it's our last chance to ever have ice cream. I used to have that mentality. Thank goodness I've thrown it out the window along with my deep fat fryer! LOL

    Have a GREAT day!

    Too funny! I can lose something without even moving from my position, it is so annoying!!!

    I had some chocolate ripple icecream last night, not nearly as good as B & J's but it was good... sometimes we just need to eat it, and track it.... otherwise we eat 10 things trying to avoid what we wanted in the first place!!!!

    Thanks for the chuckle!!
