Tonight Moses and I joined my brother, parents, and Grandparents at Red Robin for dinner. I went over a little bit early to spend time talking with my Nana and Moses joined me at my parents house after he got out of school. It was a lot of fun talking, and then piling us all into the 7 passenger van they rented for their visit added it's own entertainments!
I was in a bratty mood tonight. If you know me well, you know that's not unusual, but tonight I was in an especially bratty mood! I've been trying to be a good girl and not order sugar laden items because I need to watch both my blood sugar and weight. So I steal a taste of whatever my brother and hubby get. Or at least I try to.
Gordon, my brother, ordered an Orange Dreamsicle Smoothie. I did manage to talk him into letting me take a drink, but then later on my Dad gave me a few of his fries (I had ordered pasta), and I waited until Gordon wasn't looking and dipped my fry in his smoothie! Ooo...was I in trouble!
He got me back though. He got me back good!
A little while later he started teasing me about putting pepper in my water glass. Then he decided to tear open a splenda packet and pour THAT into my glass! I watched him do it, laughing, and called him a brat. So you would think I'd know better right? Wrong!
Not long after that I was distracted by the conversation (they had actually gotten my hubby talking) and I absent-mindedly reached for my water glass and took a sip - which promptly lead to a conniption fit!
I can handle splenda in cooking, or even in coffee, but NOT in water!
I tried grabbing my hubbies soda to get rid of the taste, but it wasn't a strong enough flavor. I was about to try to find another fry to steal when Gordon finally took pity (through his laughter) and offered me a sip of his smoothie as a peace offering. That finally got rid of the taste, but it took a lot longer for us to all stop laughing!
