Guilty pleasures

I have a few, and I must admit peeling off the old skin left after a sunburn is just one of them. Please tell me it's not just me.

And one more for the road - I also don't completely stir in my hot cocoa mix, but spoon off the top layer of chocolatey goodness from my mug. How about you?

My mom LOVES to peel skin!!! Fortunately for her she and my sister burn...my brother and I not so much. At least she had two people to peel.
Now give me a big juicy boil, and that's another story--was that what you wanted to know?

I love to peel sunburns too! My kids won't let me near them when they are peeling...except once in awhile my oldest will bribe me, "I will let you peel my sunburn for five minutes if I can have a popsicle."

I eat chocolate in secret - chocolate chips by the handful. And hot fudge tastes wonderful straight from the jar. It's also good mixed with creamy peanut butter.

I've never had a problem with peeling skin. So I don't know about that. One of my favorite guilty pleasures is grabbing a spoonful of peanut butter and dipping that into chocolate chips. Mmmmmm....

kim - I'm so bad I bribe the kids.

maisie - Oh yum! I admit I love myself a little Mrs. Richardson's on a spoon

cocoa - hopefully the peeling thing didn't just gross you right out. Growing up I used to love PB cups witht he hard chocolate on top - yum!

I liked peeling when I was a kid...we try not to get sunburned now though...
Sometimes I enjoy a nice peeling facial mask though...its almost as satisfying, and its fun to gross the kids out as it looks like I am peeling my whole face off.
Chocolate...always a pleasure...sometimes a guilty one. Chocolate and peanut butter are a great combo.
Lindt chocolate is a favorite of mine, although I refrained all during my pregnancy, and now that the baby is here I am trying to eat very little chocolate so as not to upset her tummy...

I laughed when I read your post. Yup, I like peeling skin too. When I was a kid I liked putting Elmer's glue on my palms, letting it dry and then peeling it off. You are not alone. :)

I haven't tried the cocoa thing, though. I do like a spoonful of peanut butter on occasion, though.

Mrs. Organic said...

heff - can you do white chocolate? I am so doing the face peel off for Halloween thsi year

blue castle - hi! I totally did the Elmer's glue thing with my hand. Wait, I think I have a bottle of that somewhere...

I've read somewhere that toenails have Calcium in them. Good thing.
