A Humorous Look at the Bright Side of Cancer... and There Is One

March 3, 2013

I Should Be Careful What I Wish For

03_03_2013_cancer_funny_sugarI advertised for a sugar sponsor on February 26 to help me with my little addiction. What was I thinking?

Not only did my old sugar sponsor snap back to attention and start doing her job, a new one also volunteered. Now, I’m getting emails, texts, and comments on my blog at all hours of the day:

“Good for you. Keep it up.”
“How about a delicious sweet orange?”
“How’s the sugar intake or lack thereof going?”

In addition to the unrelenting “pestering” from both sponsors, Ken and I are in eastern Washington for a mini-vacation to attend Adriana’s NWAACC basketball tournament. While Ken checked us into the Hampton Inn, I thought I’d go check out the small gift store. My eyes honed in immediately on the Haagen-Dazs Vanilla Swiss Almond ice cream. Noooooooooooo.

Oh, why didn’t I wait to advertise for a sugar sponsor until next week?

  1. Oh dear. I guess I need to keep better tabs on you Marie. On the bright side I love your hair :)

  2. Cathy,

    Well, it would be hard to keep tabs on me when I’m five hours away from you. Then again, I can hear your voice in my ear, “Don’t do it. You’ll regret it. Think of your hips.”

    I don’t know how much longer I can keep away from sugar. If I’m having this hard of a time in Richland, WA, think of what it will be like for me in Maui. Coconut gelato will be almost impossible to pass up.

    Thanks. I’m ALMOST used to the color of my hair. I was a “blond” for so long.
