The Secret

Being an adult means many different things. It means renegotiating your mortgage, making sure your bills are paid on time, remembering to change the oil in your car, and calling the repairman to fix your washing machine when it breaks. It means being responsible, and making decisions that are usually farther reaching than those that confronted you back in your school days.
It also means you know the secret.
That eating one of your Subway cookies, in the car, on the way home after work, before your supper, will not spoil your appetite.
Being an adult means being responsible, but it also means savoring those delicious moments of freedom and choice.

For me it also means knowing I shouldn't have that cookie and trying desperately not to choose it!

I envy Amanda's youth because to her a cookie is still a guilt free pleasure unless I tell her that she has to wait (it might spoil her supper)!
