Peanut, Peanut Butter

...and jam.

In an episode of Sex and the City, Carrie talks about secret single habits that all singles have. Habits that we don't want anyone else to see, or possibly even know about, but that are a part of our lives and daily routines. I think these habits are even more developed when you live solo, as there is really no one around to ever check your behavior, and no one to share anything with.

Ladles and Germs, I am here to reveal my secret single habit. I love peanut butter, and I love jelly, and I love nothing more to get a scoop of PB and then dipping that peanut butter into the jelly. That is followed by the bringing of that bite size scoop of PB&J (sans bread) into my mouth, and then into my belly. YUM.

It is a quick snack when I am a little hungry. One spoon, that's it for the mess. It is a quick comfort when I am sad...some people eat a pint of ice cream, I have a tablespoon or two of reduced fat peanut butter and low sugar jelly (usually apricot or strawberry). At least there's some protein!

I am not sure when this habit began developing. College maybe? I do know, for a very long time, I have told people not to eat my peanut butter. Not because I don't want to share, but because they may be kind of grossed out. I know I would be.

As far as secret single habits go, this one isn't too bad. It isn't like I pick my toes and then eat what I have picked out, or other nasty things people do (hey, no judging...to each their own, as long as hands get washed before they get near me).
