Sorry, the lyrics to the late Michael Jackson’s song, is what comes to mind with this Daily Prompt.
I have many addictions. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to have an expiration date and often come and go in waves. I wish I could squash the majority of my addictions, especially those of the edible variety. I can honestly profess that I am not addicted to anything illegal – thank goodness those days are over – but I find myself frustrated with my inability to control my weaknesses.
Pain is weakness leaving the body.
HA! I welcome the pain. I’m still a weakling though. I crave salty, savory foods. Bring on the charcuterie, cheese, chips, and Teavana. Yeah, no more Starbucks for me (except when I’m on vacation and I have no other choice). I’m planning to take some snacks with me on my next trip. Almonds, salame, and my favourite cheese. Along with some water.
I also think I’m addicted to youth. I keep fighting my age progression every day. Luckily, I’ve inherited some amazing genes that have helped me to retain a youthful appearance. Everyone I encounter is floored by how young I look. I definitely do not look my age (quiet! I know some of you know how “old” I am!)
I just wish my addictions would take a much more healthy approach instead of causing me to quiver at the mere sight of Miss Vickie’s Jalapeno Chips.
