Have you ever thought about getting a life do-over? Imagine being able to change one big thing – with no consequences to the rest of your life, unless you’d want that part to change. I’m really hoping that you wouldn’t change your spouse, but I won’t judge you if that’s what you choose. I took my time with this and really thought about all the areas of my life that could be better – profession, college choices, the car I drive, even my muscular dystrophy.
I would change my love of nachos.
Now, don’t panic, I love them so much and I’m not saying they aren’t really worth it. Unfortunately they are ridiculously difficult and time-consuming to make for yourself. As I sit here at midnight, typing away on my next book, I find myself wanting that delicious late night snack that I love so dearly.
If only I could love a box of cookies the way I love Taco Bell.
Unfortunately, the universe isn’t listening to my plea and no amount of snacking will quell this need inside me for cheese and meat dripped over a pile of crunchy tortilla chips. So now I’m left to make some critical decisions. The rain is falling, the temperatures are below freezing, and it’s not exactly the safest time to drive to Taco Bell. And yet, those nachos keep calling my name.
Heather, Heather, Heather you need me.
Any snack that lures you to your death is inherently evil and should not be desired.
That’s what I keep telling myself as I type – which I’m doing with one hand so I can eat candy with the other. Candy that isn’t doing the job, leaving my soul dying a slow agonizing death as it reaches its hands out toward a non-existent plate of nachos.
You know what? I’ve changed my mind. I love nachos and I’m willing to risk my life for them!
