Voice Of Experience

FYI - If you are a on a budget and at the pharmacy and hesitate when you are forced to choose between birth control pills or a pile of chocolate bars the pharmacist will raise an eyebrow at you. 
And if you suddenly remember that you have a stash of forgotten cash in your coat pocket and then say, "Score! No babies AND I get to keep the candy!" his upper lip will curl up just a tiny bit.
And if you do this, be sure to take a BIG bite of that Heath bar and give him a big wink and toothy chocolate smeared smile when you walk away. It'll make his night.

1. I would take the chocolate every time. My husband would just have to learn how effective abstinence is, because I am not giving up the chocolate.

2. Our neighbor is a pharmacist. I'm pretty sure his brain would explode if he was confronted by you...

3. A Heath bar sounds really good right now.

My husband started bringing home CASES of full size heath bars a few months ago. Apparently to fatten me up for winter. They sound good ALL the time...

Areyou - It's always a good time for a Heath bar. Love your comments, made me laugh!

AmyKate - They just might be the best candy bar out there. In close running with the Skor bar of course...

Have you ever had Heath bar fruit dip? It is to die for!

1 block of cream cheese
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 bag of Heath bar bits (in the baking aisle)

It's great on crackers too if you eat up all your fruit. Not that I've done that, I'm just saying...

Becky - Oh yum! I will remember that to bring to a Halloween party. We've done Snicker's "salad" in the past. Cut up apples mixed with cool whip and diced Snickers bars. Goood.

Jenny brought me to your "why are there so many voices post," but this post just made me a follower, lol.

Mom O Matic said...

Karlynuke - Yeah! Glad you are on board, welcome! Jenny is amazing.

I can emphatically say that as a pharmacist myself I wish I had had more patients like you when I worked retail pharmacy.

Oh, and I forgot to ask, do they still make Skor bars? Damn but they were the best!

Mom O Matic said...

Kristine - Good to see you back! They totally still make Skor bars.
