Why is it that my family prefers Cheez-its over Cheese-nips? Frankly, I find the Cheez-its to have a greasy quality and leave a weird aftertaste.
The other day at the grocery store, Sissy would not relent on wanting the "square crackers with one hole". I thought about throwing Cheese nips in the cart, figuring she wouldn't know the difference, but I was in a hurry and didn't see any Nips nearby, so I grabbed the Cheez-its box.
I haven't had Cheese-nips in forever. They were one of the few snacky type things in the vending machine on the 3rd floor of Smith Hall that I enjoyed.
I worked paste-up for the Parthenon (Marshall University's school newspaper) and we worked from 4 pm to whenever the paper was finished. Back then, we did everything by hand, laying the articles column by column and if it was a larger issue, we'd be there late.
If I needed a boost, I'd go to the vending machine and get Cheese nips and a Mountain Dew.
Now, I try to not have many snacks in the house that I like. Too tempting... but I might just have to pick up a small pack of Cheese-nips next time I go shopping.
Or, I could try to convert my family to my way of thinking and force them to eat and love the nips, too.
What do you think?
I have had a HELL of a week, so today is all about doing as little as possible. No stress, nowhere to be (except to pick up Buddy from school). It's chilly and dreary outside, so a perfect day for lounging! :-)
