I'm apparently not human. I never want to eat the entire bag, package, or box of anything. I don't like Doritos.

Yep. Locals in Nova Scotia eat of all stuff, too, and they can't believe we don't. They think we're a bunch of wimps. I've tried, but I just can't bring myself to eat it.

I guess it's good that they eat (almost) every part of the lobster and don't waste as much of it as we do.

Buttertarts come in squares? I only know the round ones. They are soooo good.

Exactly. Three days later, you have to throw away the salad

I have trouble controlling myself with Sunchips. I wish they came in very tiny bags. They probably do, now that I think about it.

But then it would be difficult to buy just one bag.

Veering off-topic, but this will interest you or anybody who has wondered what the green stuff is. Read the comments below the short article for the real “meat” of the subject!

I will never touch that stuff! Not that it makes any difference, because ever since I watched my parents boil live lobsters I could not bring myself to eat it. People talk about being traumatized as kids when they found kittens or puppies drowned in bags of rocks. For me, it was seing the dark speckly living lobsters desperately trying to escape the boiling water. Turning bright orange-red in the process.

Good name.

I love guacamole, which is similarly green and spoonable. But I know it came out of a plant and it doesn’t bother me, which is funny because I’m not vegan. Even though I don’t seek out pate and would be reluctant to eat it, I could eat *a little bit* even though it, too, comes from an animal’s filter organ.

Our personal cultural histories defy logic sometimes.

Even though I live in Krispy Kreme country there's a small, one store only family owned donut shop at the beach I live near that sells one style donut and blows Krispy Kreme into the weeds. I avoid going there as I could eat half a bag before even thinking about how many I'd eaten.

Other temptations I don't avoid:

Good bread (especially with Roquefort, pears, and wine), homemade pirogis, good kielbasa and kabanosy, dark chocolate, pizza, shrimp, cherries, any sort of berry, homemade ice cream and sorbet, and that's just a sampling.
