Me: Matt, what cookies do you feel like you absolutely HAVE to have for Christmas?
Matt: Peanut butter balls...russian tea cakes...ginger snaps...spritz cookies...truffles.....toffee
Me: Ummmmm, okay. Can you pare it down at all? Do we have to do the tea cakes and the spritz cookies?
Matt: Mindy, Christmas only comes once a year!
Me: Can you pick just one to leave off the list?
Matt: That's like asking me to pick one of my children to hand over to the nazi's.
Mindy: (rolls eyes)
As all good little recovering addicts know, avoidance is key. Alcoholics don't go to bars. Sexaholics don't go to massage parlors. Sugarholics don't bake 16 batches of cookies and store them in tins above the fridge. Dear husband, I love you and all, but STOP ENABLING ME!
