Addict: to devote or surrender (oneself) to something habitually or obsessively
My dear friends, I am an addict.
Some people are addicted to coffee. Not me.
Some people are addicted to energy drinks. Not me.
Some people are addicted to alcohol. Definitely, not me.
Some people are addicted to methamphetamine. Again, definitely, not me.
Some people are addicted to television. Not me (Insert quote: "Ain't nobody got time for that!")
Some people are addicted to video games. Again, "ain't nobody got time for that."
Some people struggle to admit addiction. Not me.
I am addicted to Subway cookies.
In some ways, I'm your typical addict. I make you try it and get you "hooked" too. I have a "dealer." And I go borderline crazy without my "substance".
In other ways, I'm not your typical addict. I am totally aware of my addiction. Yes, it may control me, but it doesn't make me do stupid things... Unless, of course, you consider driving around to find the proper quantity stupid.
You would think that a sandwich shop that has used a man named Jared, who lost 245 lbs by eating their sandwiches, as their main marketing tool for years wouldn't sell cookies. Well, let me tell you: Subway sells cookies. And they are D-E-licious. I'm talking, buy them by the dozen good.
There are four, yes, 4, Subways within the city limits of Rexburg. And I have absolutely no problem walking into one, checking to see if they have a dozen cookies, and if they don't I drive a mile or two to the next location. I then proceed to purchase my cookies.
I may or may not eat my dozen cookies within in 24-48 hours. Never more, never less.
I recommend the double chocolate chip cookies.
They are my guilty pleasure and I suggest they become yours as well.
