dear ms b-i am addicted


ms b
i use to say i was addicted to chocolate
since being on the aricept (donepezil) i have had a lot
of trouble sleeping at night
eating all that chocolate
like brownies snickers sees candy
i noticed that it like too much coffee
made sleep a real problem for me
i have gradually weened myself off chocolate
so that now
its an occasionally vice i partake in the morning
substituting the piece of chocolate
for maybe a 1/4 or 1/2 cup of coffee
keeping my caffeine intake about the same that way

ms b
i have another real life long addiction
that i have no plans to eliminate
restrict in any way

its called sports
last night texas played oklahoma in basketball
no 25 vs no 1 or 2
it was on too late for me
i dvred it
watched it this morning at 400 am
missing all the commercials
watching knowing i wouldnt dose off to sleep
enjoying my first coffee and maybe a bite of that
now dont tell gma about that chocolate
thats our secret

the invention of dvrs
our subscribing to dvr service with our satelite provider
we live too far in the boonies to get cable
has only made my addiction to sports worse

youll find me many a early morning hour
watching a dvred sporting event
ms b
i just hate watching all those commercials
all that commentatoring that goes on at half time
especially if my team is losing

now im sorry to say for you
your mom
that i passed that addiction to your daddy
to your uncle

im sorry about that
you know they could be addicted to worst things

no i dont plan to enter a 12 step program
i just plan on
watching my favorite sports
my leisure
so it doesnt really affect anyone else

so please dont let anyone plan
an intervention on me
it wont take
