See, I needed a new toner cartridge. Before the holidays, you could graze through Sam's and get your fat calories for the week--and in only one session. But now, fugettaboutit. (Although they did have one sample: Angel food cake with a black berry. Not fattening, and quite tasty, but a teeny weenie portion.)
Since we were in the "goodies" section anyway, we passed by the croissants. Yum! I love 'em. (Doesn't everybody?) They had baby croissants and the JUMBO ones, too. I recently bought four jumbo croissants at the grocery store. The check-out girl forgot to ring them up, and, being the honest person my parents brought me up to be, I went to the Service Counter to rectify the situation. I was thanked profusely for my honestly, and as I had no cash, bellied up to the credit card machine, thinking I'd be embarrassed at such a paltry sum, and was shocked to find out those croissants were $1.25 -- EACH!
It just so happens that hubby has one of those digital watches with a calculator in it. He whipped out his arm and did some calculations and found that the jumbo croissants at Sam's were a mere 45 cents each. Well, you just KNEW they were going into our cart, right?
So there I was at breakfast yesterday, looking at the lovely dozen and thinking to myself: Would Hank eat this croissant? Of course, she'd be thinking, "Would Jackie O eat his croissant?" And of course the answer would have to be YES! I mean, wasn't Jackie O part French? (Her maiden name was Bouvier, she wore Paris gowns, and spoke French--certainly croissants HAD to be at the top of her "things I will eat" menu. Of course, she would have chosen a small croissant--as I'm sure Hank would--not the jumbo kind. But I digress...)
I thought I did well. I only ate one (jumbo) croissant. No butter. Just a very thin layer of raspberry jam.
It was de-lish. And, honestly, don't you think I HAD to eat it?
What would you have done?
