Balancing my diet


For my Thanksgiving dinner last week, I bought a pumpkin pie and a can of aerosol whipped cream. Because pumpkin pie is my favorite. And I’m not going to denigrate fans of Cool Whip, but come on…Reddi Wip is the Jiffy Pop of the dessert table. 

I ran out of pie before I ran out of Reddi Wip. So last night, I bought another small pumpkin pie. Because “waste not want not,” right?

But now I have three quarters of a pie, and I’m out of Reddi Wip. So, if I don’t want to waste the pie, I probably have to go buy more Reddi Whip, don’t I? 

I believe I’m trapped in what is known as a “Delicious Circle.”
