Who Are "They" Anyway?

You know how they tell you you should never go to the store hungry, and if you ever go to the store hungry you should never walk down the candy aisle, because they might be having a big sale on a 5 pound bag of gummy bears, and you might buy them and have them in your house and keep eating them for the next 4 days even though you don't really want to?

Yeah, they're probably right.

If only I could remember some of the other things "they" say before I actually do them...

I didn't know "they" said the part about the bears. Good to know. :)

Jen said...

gummy bears not so tempting...but make them CINNAMON and then dip them in chocolate....OH YEAH!

Barbaloot said...

They also say things like, "Don't eat a whole bag of jerky in one day." But I still do it.

Tay said...

They also say "teach your husband how to put on cloth diapers before telling him to just do it." That's a big thing to listen to if you want to avoid big messes. don't ask.

Stacey said...

They say that to me all of the time but I still shop and I end up with lots of junk food.

I completely agree with Jen about the cinnamon and chocolate. YUM!

JustRandi said...

Ok, I have never tried chocolate cinnamon bears. Where do I find them? Because I need to go to the store again today, and I figure I can just wait till I'm hungry and come home with a giant bag!

Erin said...

Aren't gummy bears relatively healthy? Like, 5 pounds of gummy bears are MUCH better for you than 5 pounds of chocolate? I think you're doing yourself a favor :)

I have somehow managed to eat ice cream for both dinner last night, and breakfast this morning, so I think you're safe.

Karen said...

"They" should also not sell red licorice in giant 10 lb. tubs at Costco.

Nancy Face said...

I need to steer clear of the white chocolate macadamia nut cookies!

Jillybean said...

"They" are those people who see all, hear all and know all.

I imagine "they" would be really annoying people to hang out with.

And you MUST find the chocolate covered cinnamon bears. If you can't find them locally look on the internet.
I am now craving the chocolate covered cinnamon bears. (thanks a bunch) Lucky for me there's a store just a few miles from my house that sells them.

It's OK to be jealous.

Dave said...

They say not to sit at work and keep refreshing google reader hoping someone posts something funny.

And I'm proud to announce to everyone (boss included) that I always heed Their advice.

Lara said...

Oh yeah, the chocolate covered cinnamon bears? DI-VINE!

And I hate "They." They are annoying. :)

Heather said...

They also say not to text and drive.... psh.

Heidi Ashworth said...

Ah, heck, "they" don't know what they're talking about most of the time. "They" keep changing their minds, too. First, swine flu is scary, then "they" say it's not worth being bothered about. Sheez!

Cherie said...

I need to stay clear of the potato chip isle! I'm hooked on a little bit of lime chips!!

Oh the grocery store is just dangerous period!!

mormonhermitmom said...

Are they the same they that say you should wait 30 minutes after eating before going in the pool.

Because as far as I'm concerned no one should ever "go" in the pool.

No Cool Story said...

AY ay ay don't remind me.
I juts ate a whole bag of gummi life savers (again) and my stomach is unhappy (again)

Sue Q said...

"THEY" ARE A MENACE TO SOCIETY!!

Actually, I think "They" are a product of Microsoft. Bill Gates must have something to do with this....

Jennifer said...

I don't know who "they" are. I read a quote a couple weeks ago that said "there is no "they", just you. Now get busy! :)

Emmy said...

Yep they do say that.. they say lots of things I like to ignore :)

Roxie said...

They should really tell me about how the earlier I turn the computer off, the earlier I'll go to bed.

Melissa Bastow said...

You know those really corny "Family Circus" cartoons where they blame 'nobody' (or whatever they call it)? Yeah, well, 'nobody' and 'them' are closely related, and can therefore be blamed for most everything -that is, if you live by "Family Circus" cartoons....

Brenda Susan said...

Ha! I do the same thing with a big bag of cinnamon bears or a big box of Jujy Fruit candy! Then I lie in bed that night with a solid feeling in my tummy, not good! Ha!

Lee said...

Try muddy bears. They are chocolate covered gummy bears but there is no cinnamon.

I don't know about THEY, but I say, "if you steal food off my plate one more time, you might not get that hand back!"

Lee said...

HOLY MOLY!!! I MADE THE LIST!!
whooo hoo!!! I may celebrate with some muddy bears! :)

The Crash Test Dummy said...

That is so true about the gummy bears. Been there, sistah!

And I've always wondered who THEY were too.

Thanks for the birthday wishes.

I miss Emma.

Carrie said...

Well really, who is "they" and why do "they" think they know it all? I mostly don't trust them. (I think "they" would say I shouldn't be on blogs when I'm writing an essay for my final - what do "they" know?)

Yvonne said...

I never listen to the things "they" say ; )

LisAway said...

Except it'd never be gummi bears for me (ick.) Wish it would, though. They're probably much more nutritious, I mean less bad for you than what I'd choose.

For me it's not only the candy aisle. I just want some of EVERYTHING, including things I don't like.

Tink said...

You and my husband must've been at the same store down the same aisle because HE came home with a 5 lb bag, too! From the lips straight to the hips. Oye.
