We made it through all the deadly sins. I love this one. If I’m going to commit a deadly…then this is the one that will send me straight to hell.
I can’t see the word ‘gluttonous’ without thinking about going to vocational school a billion years ago. I went to vocational school to learn how to become a computer programmer way back in 1983. I WANTED to take the cosmetology course and be a hairdresser. The class was filled by the time I registered..and NO ONE was taking data processing.
This is where we find ourselves 30 years later. Watching Netflix® and writing a blog post about
The word from vocational school all those years ago isn’t even gluttonous, it’s gelatinous. For some reason, my brain seems to process them exactly the same, so they are the same word. Kind of like women named Janet or Karen have the exact same name in my more than likely damaged brain.
So, yeah, there is no real need for me to talk about gluttony being a bad thing, right? Or that getting stressed out and stuffing yourself with cheap noodles and ice cream sandwiches isn’t going to solve any of your problems. I’m going to assume that we are all on the same page here.
Instead…let’s talk about how we like to indulge.
I’m hosting the family Thanksgiving dinner this year. As much as it makes me crazy to cook for all those people, I love it just the same. You know why?
I make the dinner and hubs makes the desserts.
He makes bread pudding out of Krispy Kreme® donuts. And brownies that have Oreos® and chocolate chip cookie dough in them. Slutty brownies. What’s not to love about a dessert with the word ‘slut’ in it? You KNOW that shit is going to be good.
What’s your favorite indulgence? Also, send me your favorite Thanksgiving recipe. I’d like to change it up a little this year. If you share, I’ll send you the slutty brownie recipe. You KNOW you want it.
Why does gelatinous remind me of vocational school? Someone wrote a program that was a lame ass role playing game. When I SHOULD have been doing my work in class, I would play the game instead. The game would ask you question and you would answer and depending on your answer, you receive or lose points. One of the questions was this: You are being attacked by a gelatinous mass. Do you run away or fight?
And I wonder why my kids are dweebs.
