I Said No Gift and I Meant it!



I instructed Hubba-hubba to not get me anything for Valentine's Day. I find that particular "holiday" to be artificial and annoying.

So when I got home from my weekend away, I was surprised to find a box waiting for me on the kitchen counter.

I took one look at it and began swearing.

Listen, the dude knows that See's Chocolate, specifically the "Nuts and Chews" selection, is like crack to me. I cannot resist it. Because if it's good enough for Warren Buffett, it's more than good enough for me. Therefore, none is kept in the house.

You don't even want to know how many I've already eaten.

And even sadder? I accidentally smeared some on my pajama shirt and I have been sniffing it for the past ten minutes or so.

Pathetic, I know.

Is there a 12-step out there for this type of thing?

See's Chocolate, oh my god. Enjoy your chocolate for all of us out there who don't have access :(

Steph said...

Mmmmm.... See's Chocolate... I say enjoy it!

Scout said...

Ahh, See's candy. We can't get that here unless someone ships it as a gift, so I don't have to worry. I have a similar draw to other great chocolate, though, so I try to keep it to a minimum.

I told hubby V-Day morning "don't send me flowers" because I think V-Day anything is a waste of money. "Too late" he said.
They were wilting by the next day and in a week I'll get a bill for sixty bucks worth of roses when I think I could have gotten a pedicure instead.
F**k.

Enjoy. It's good to splurge every now and then.

They're little...and can't hardly mean anything harmful at all, if you eat them one at a time. They don't even count. ;)

Ana said...

Lol@ Gina! You are too funny! But I feelz ya, chocolate is my crack too. Let me know when you find that CA (chocoholic anonymous) for chocoholics!

Did you say nuts and chews? Lordy, lordy. My twelve step program includes eating twelve pieces in a row until the box is empty.

I'm still wearing my Sees candy nuts and chews shelf above my ass.

Can I have one?

Ortizzle said...

I have never tried those. But I have always been intrigued because apparently it is the prize for the Pointless Points Trivia, so it must be worth.... uh, waiting for. So now I must see if Sees are really worth the hip expansion. ;-)

Atasha said...

You are just too much...."sniffing it for the past ten minutes" :) This is the first year than my husband actually took me seriously and didn't get me anything and I was pleased.

Enjoy that chocolate. Do you have any left?

Nance said...

I absolutely know what you mean. I hate the artificial holidays, and it would be different if the cash wasn't all from the same till.

Yet...there's something about a box of chocolates, really good chocolates, that can be distracting. Hurry and eat them up and be glad that there isn't another Chocolate Holiday coming along (for YOU) for a good while.

Dude - I did good till I noticed all valentines candy was 50 percent off at Walgreens. I bought some. And then some more.

Only thing worse than artificial holidays is discount artifical holiday remnants.

Swindew said...

I hate Valentine's Day too. It is a totally made up Hallmark day. Anywho, is See's a Cali thing? OK, so I really do live in box, under a chair. What is See's?

Liz said...

I say just eat them all to get rid of them. Then they won't be taunting you any more.

Sally said...

Oh, I'm the same way with See's candy...yum yum! It's a good thing they don't sell it out here...everyone eats Russel Stover, which is NOWHERE near the same as See's.

Ok, I realize I'm VERY late reading this post, but I still must comment.

I too am the sort of girl who doesn't do Valentines. But I also came home to find a box of See's. My boy went to See's ON Valentines day (because he's not a planner and crazy enough to stand in that line), and got me a custom box of chocolates. I've been trying to be good, but I admit that I have had a piece or two before breakfast a few days this week.
