With all of the hullabaloo in the world, it would be nice to get back to midwestern sensibilities.

It's the Chocolate Chips
If you are like me, just the picture of this chocolate heart-shaped delicacy is enough to put your fragile diet in grave peril. I pull up to the Dunkin' Donuts and there the donut provokes me and dares me to just order the medium coffee. I stare down and defeat the donut. I win that battle. But, can I win the war? Can I hold out until February 14 when they take that picture down and hopefully, replace it with something that is not sprinkled with chocolate chips?
Tim and I talk all of the time about how we have vices. Most 'grown-ups' enjoy a little drink here or there, but for us, it is all about the sugar. Tim likes to get his tingle from soda. Cold, straight from the can cola. I take mine in baked good form. I am on the wagon and trying my very best to hold it together, but that donut might just be my Waterloo.
