Last night I busted out the 2 containers of what was left of the Breyers Rocky Road aka Heaven From the Freezer.

Easy asked me to dish him some.

The problem was that there was a good container and an old kinda-nasty one. Both only had enough for one serving.

What to do?


I dished the old stuff first and in my hanging-out-with-toddlers-all-day thoughts it didn't look so bad in the bowl. I assumed I could just pass it off. You know, usually if it doesn't look bad then it isn't to kids. Plus, chocolate is chocolate. Right?

Well I was wrong. I placed it on the counter for E and took off with the good stuff into the other room to check my email. On my return I here it -

"Hey. Honey, so why did you give me the nasty ice cream?"

Uh Oh. What? Is he talking to me? Crap...

"Ummmm..." I'm trying to think of something, but I can't. "Well there wasn't enough of the good stuff and you asked me to dish it."

"I can't believe it." - He's grinning and loving this.

I'm squirming now. Totally guilty. Embarrassed. This has turned into a stupid test of some sort.

"Well," I proceed, "What would you have done?"

"I would have split the good stuff with you."

He states it automatically. No hesitation.

Right. Crap again.

The problem is that he really would have. Easy is a giver. Easy thinks of me. He would have split the good stuff.

Then he continues, just to rub it in, "Guess this means that I love you more than you love me..."

He is enjoying this too much.

"So what does that make me?" I ask.

And he says it. Again without hesitation and with an added smirk, "Selfish."

Ouch. The loathed word. He has gotten me back with this.

So I did just what I had to. I apologized, gave him a nice big chocolaty kiss, and I finished off my Heaven.

Every. Last. Bite.

I can picture this exchange quite well, entertaining. Eric has always been very giving & considerate of others, it is an awesome trait of his.

Don't worry. I do that all the time but my Erik doesn't ever notice or at least he doesn't care enough to say anything. I really want some rocky road now. :)
