Pssst, don't tell anyone...

Wanna know a secret about PB? It's shocking but true, and you have to promise on your honor not to tell anyone. PB drinks instant coffee. There, I said it. I drink it too, every now and again, maybe 2X a week during the cold months, almost never during the warm months. PB drinks it, by the drinking glass full, all day long, he drinks it like most people drink soda. or we we in the south like to say, coke (not Coke, we call all carbonated soft drinks coke, with a little c, you ask "Do you want a coke?", the answer is "Yes", then you ask "What kind of coke do you want?"). All that just to say that PB drinks a lot of instant coffee. He likes his on the sweet side, one spoon of coffee (Folgers is his first choice), 2-3 spoons of non-dairy creamer and 3-4 spoons of sugar, I'm not talking about small spoons either, we are talking big spoons.

Now I suppose it's only fair that I tell you a secret about myself, again you must promise not to tell a soul. I wear reading glasses, well I guess that anyone who knows me already knows that, I kinda like it though, I'm at the age where no one says "ohhhh, you got new glasses", I think they look kinda cute on me too. After buying one pair from the store, I quickly decided that I needed to get a backup pair, I know you have seen someone running around looking for their glasses, I didn't want to paint that picture of myself, so I purchased several pair and have them strategically planted around the sky castle, I can almost always put my hands on a pair in short order. I also purposely got different colors (same style) so that everyone would get used to seeing me in a different set from time to time, can't let people get too used to seeing me in just one pair. Oh and anytime you see a middle aged to older person touch the top of their head and then next the front collar of their shirt, it's a safe bet that they are looking for their glasses. :)

Let's see, what other secret can I tell... OK, here's one, I eat peanut butter out of the jar, yes it's shocking but true, I don't usually want a sandwich but I'll want some little something, so I'll grab a butter knife, fork or spoon and dig away, yes, I double dip. Not to worry, I always have a new jar in case I have guests who happen to want a peanut butter sandwich. I don't do that with anything else, no I don't drink the milk out of the jug or anything else like that, it's just the peanut butter.

So now I sit here with my cup of instant coffee, sweetened with sugar and NIDO instant whole milk, I just finished a piece of cake, I'm looking longingly at the jar of peanut butter and wondering where my glasses are, I bid you goodnight.

  1. I hate to say it, but we have some of the same habits when it comes to peanut butter!

    As far as glasses, don't need 'em since my cataract surgery...how cool is that?

    I prefer to not have instant coffee, but it's certainly better than nothing. No creamer, just sugar!

    Thanks for sharing your secrets with us!

  2. I'm here to confess I eat PB out of jar , minus the bread...Also, I am a coffee-holic, not instant though, good ole Maxwell House 1/2 decaf...
    There i have spilled my secrets. :)

  3. hi Aretha I have miss you, sounds like we have the same things in common except the peanutbutter we drink coffee all the time and I have 2 jars of instant hidden away where no one knows, I also wear reading glasses and I need to get me another pair. I hope you are doing fantastic.

  4. Trust me, my dear lady, you are not alone eating peanut butter straight out of the jar.

  5. Ok, I don't exactly eat PB out of the jar, my technique involves spooning the PB onto a banana, Taking a bite, then dipping the spoon back into the jar, spread it on the next bite.... So "technically" is that double dipping?
