Family Tradition?

Jeremy and I have started this little "tradition" and it is still going strong after 6 years. I fondly call it The Cadbury Egg War. Each year around Easter when our most favorite of candies becomes available I buy it in hordes. Jeremy has a super sweet tooth so he will literally eat 3 or more eggs between the grocery store and our house ( a ten minute drive!). I love Cadbury Eggs too but am a little more reserved about eating mine. I can pace myself and still have an egg or two left 6 months down the road. Hence-the War.

Jeremy will eat every single egg in the house if I let him which leaves yours truly with none. So, a few years ago we started putting our names on the boxes (remind anybody else of kindergarten?) with the understanding of what's mine stays mine. Jeremy couldn't resist and I wound up a dozen or so short.

Then it escalated to full on war when I started hiding my Cadbury Eggs. He would tear the house apart looking for them.

Now we are at the hostage negotiation stage. Yesterday he found one of my hidden eggs and sent me a picture on my cell phone of him eating it. I was seriously pissed and swore vengeance. Jeremy is a Coke addict, seriously. He will drink a 2 liter a day easy; and caffeine in the morning is a must for him especially when he has to go in at 2am. Like today. (Insert evil laugh here) I got up late last night, stole his Coke from the fridge, but left a little ransom note in it's place. Something to the effect of "You eat my Cadbury I steal your Coke. If you ever want your morning Coke again my Cadburys will be replaced. Love-your darling wife." Simple and to the point. We'll see who has the last laugh now, huh?

I know, we're a little crazy, but it keeps life interesting. I apologize for the completely random post but hopefully you got a laugh out of it.

That is quite possibly one of the funniest things I've ever read. I love it!!! Dave and I have a battle with his sunflower seeds. He was eating them by the pound awhile back, and I kept finding seed shells everywhere....gross.

Hilarious--as usual.
Seriously though-thinking about eating 3 cadbury eggs makes me puke a little in my mouth.
Although I have to say, I am that way with Peeps.

I just want you to know that I read this to Dave tonight. I laughed so hard that I cried (and it was my second time to read it)!
