I am the high you can't sustain

Snack avoidance. I have tried, without thinking too hard about it, not to eat sh*t.

On an ordinary afternoon it is difficult for me not to get a 99¢ bag of Doritos and a can of something (more often one of those cans that look like a battery) for the drive home. Not because I am hungry. Because I am bored. If I don't keep my jaw working, I begin to get drowsy and by the time I get home - and need to pick up for Mom - I am miserable.

Will power - as I said, passive willpower, I just try and think of something else - has gotten me through the past week and I have had nothing but food at mealtime and the occasional piece of fruit.

If there are cookies at the front desk I'll have one, and it will seem like a treat, and not just another in a parade of things I stuff in my gob.

And lately I have been chewing a lot of gum. A whole lot of gum. Little pieces of sugar-free gum. Mmmn. Gum.
