I just realized that I do a somewhat peculiar thing.
I claim to eat a lot of trail-mix. And yes, there is usually a big bag of the stuff on my desk. And yes, the trail-mix does get consumed. Sort of.
I make my own trail-mix. Use the regular premix at the store then add generous helpings of corn nuts, reese’s pieces and at least double the amount of smarties in the stuff.
However when I eat it, what do I do? Pick out all the corn-nuts, reese’s pieces and smarties, and eat those. Occasionally I’ll toss in an almond or cashew for fun. But mostly I just eat the stuff I added, and end up tossing the rest – because who wants to eat a bagfull of rasins and peanuts? Ew.
So, to recap: I buy trail mix, stir in candy, promptly pick out the candy, eat it, and throw away the trail mix.
And why don’t I just buy candy and leave that on my desk? Because that’s unhealthy!
