Faking It

I rounded up my three little boys and some neighbor kids for a trip to the park the other day. While waiting for them all to find shoes and get in the car I began to smell something like hot food wafting through my car.

I was ready to get out and check if the engine was over heating, because I'm mechanical and stuff, when I heard this conversation.

#6: What is that?

Chubby Neighbor kid: A Hot Pocket

#6: Is it good?

Chubby Neighbor Kid: It's artificial.

#6: Artificial?

Chubby Neighbor Kid: Artificial, it means fake, it's not real food.

#6: So what do you do with it?

Chubby Neighbor Kid: You eat it.

#6: But you just said it's not real food!

Chubby Neighbor Kid: Wellll...Parts of it are real, like the broccoli.

#6: What parts are fake?

Chubby Neighbor Kid: Well, the meat is really fake and the crust is kind of real and kind of fake, but, the cheese is all artificial.

#6: Umm, so if it's artificial why do you eat it?

Chubby Neighbor Kid: Because it's SO GOOD!

Story of my life Chubby Neighbor Kid, story of my life.

I relate well to this so-called chubby neighbor kid.

Oh Chubby Neighbour Kid, I know that so well. As I gobble down my favourite packet biscuit with jam that isn't jam and cream that isn't cream squished between two fake bits of overly sweet shortbread... YUMMY!

You know what Dr. Phil says, "Fake it till you make it!" Hotpockets took that gem and Ran with it. I heart fake food! ...of course that may be the primary reason I'm working harder than a one legged woman in a butt kicking contest to lose all this weight, lol!

LOVE THIS!!! It is the same reason why those stupid Ho-Hos and Twinkies taste so good and so gross all at the same time. Really, why is that???
