“I am getting you a $100 iTunes gift card for your birthday today,” mom just told me on the phone. “What do you do with them? You can’t buy beer with them, can you?”
“I usually just get audiobooks for my iPod,” I replied. “And no, you can’t get beer off of iTunes. I certainly wish you could sometimes. If I could download beer off the Internet then I would be in serious terrible trouble.”
“What do you want for grocery day?” mom then asked.
I told her I wanted Lean Cuisines instead of Marie Callender meals. The Marie meals played havoc on my bulimia and drove me crazy this past week. They are fatty, over the top, salty, tasteful, and make me want to binge. Lean Cuisines are bland, small portioned, and not dangerous.
“Get me three packs of Snicker’s bars!” I then said excitedly. Sugar is my new drug it seems. I am very limited by my family of the drugs in which i can partake these days.
“I will get you two 2-liters of diet soda, but your father says they have to be caffeine free.”
“Okay,” I replied. “But get me three.”
“Three?” mom asked. “That is going to push your budget over the limits.”
“Mom, they cost .99 cents per 2-liter!”
“Well, okay,” she said and hung up the phone.
I can’t wait for my Snicker’s bars and soda! The hours till around 2pm are going to pass so slowly.
