Then dinner rolled around and Eric called to see what I was making. I told him that I had planned on making chicken and yellow rice but got wrapped up in work instead. I told him I had the leftover previously mentioned pork chops or some cans of soup that I could heat up. He said he wasn’t in the mood for that and showed up 10 minutes later with Taco Hell, I mean Taco Bell. I told myself I couldn't eat any of it…. that a 'one point' can of soup was all I was allowed for dinner because of the day's previous transgressions. But (I am sure you know where this story is going) 'Hell' won and I had some quesadillas and crunchy tacos (and I am admitting... enjoyed every minute of it).
