Regrets Are What You Have Before You Get Eaten!

Standard

Eggs are a symbol of fertility, perhaps the most obvious, with second place going to the prolific rabbit. There. Connection made. But what about the chocolate ones? There is nothing very fertile about them when they get eaten. Do we get more fertile after we eat one?

In what household is there such a thing as “leftover candy?” Candy isn’t especially perishable, candy is not like hard-boiled Easter eggs.

It is not “leftover,” it is still candy. It doesn’t need to be “recycled.” It just needs to be properly stored and eaten in moderation until it runs out. Right.. say that five times with Cadbury Mini Eggs in your mouth! Yes, I am going to have regrets after this!

Here’s a tip. Don’t eat the brown jelly beans they are not chocolate.

I once ate two pounds of jelly beans for a charity dare. I promptly threw up a rainbow. I had regrets!

I don’t know if I could put away 33.3 Cadbury eggs in one sitting, but I’d like to try.

Leave me alone, let me eat my candy in peace..No regrets!

Peeps have no fat content — but five of the little guys have 34 grams of sugar — 20 minutes of moderate exercise will burn those calories off! Look at the regrets this wee chap has!

Like roasted marshmallows? Yes, you do!

Then try roasted peeps – it’s like Creme Brulee on a stick! Amazing!

About lindaseccaspina

Linda Knight Seccaspina was born in Cowansville, Quebec about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7 at CHS by Mrs. Blinn. When Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died in 2010, Linda wrote her own obituary. Some people said she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa from 1976-1996. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off she finally found her calling. Is it sex drugs and rock n' roll you might ask? No, it is history. Seeing that her very first boyfriend in Grade 5 (who she won a Twist contest with in the 60s) is the head of the Brome Misissiquoi Historical Society and also specializes in local history back in Quebec, she finds that quite funny. She writes every single day and is also a columnist for Hometown News and Screamin's Mamas. She is a volunteer for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, an admin for the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page, and a local guest speaker. She has been now labelled an historian by the locals which in her mind is wrong. You see she will never be like the iconic local Lanark County historian Howard Morton Brown, nor like famed local writer Mary Cook. She proudly calls herself The National Enquirer Historical writer of Lanark County, and that she can live with. Linda has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County, and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she wrote her obituary, most people assume she's already dead. Linda has published six books, "Menopausal Woman From the Corn," "Cowansville High Misremembered," "Naked Yoga, Twinkies and Celebrities," "Cancer Calls Collect," "The Tilted Kilt-Vintage Whispers of Carleton Place," and "Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac." All are available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. Linda's books are for sale on Amazon or at Wisteria · 62 Bridge Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada, and at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum · 267 Edmund Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada--Appleton Museum-Mississippi Textile Mill and Mill Street Books and Heritage House Museum and The Artists Loft in Smith Falls.
