The Breakup

Dear Whole Grain Cheez-Its,

When I first saw your cheesy goodness on the grocery store shelf, I thought you were the answer to my late-night snacking prayers. After all, who could say I was eating junk food when I was gulping down whole grains instead of Oreos at 2am?

But you deceived me with your cheddar lies. You lured me in with your delectable crunchiness and seduced me with your whole grain promises. Causing my mouth to swell up with a sudden allergic reaction when I was the only one home with the baby just wasn't very considerate. What if my throat had closed up too? Then I wouldn't be able to swallow those 5 grams of whole grains advertised on your box.

Now I have to make time to be seen by an allergist. That's two hours of my life I can't spend eating those golden, square nuggets of joy.

And so I am breaking up with you. I am leaving you for plain ol' Cheez-Its that don't cause me to risk anaphylaxis during snack time. You and I just aren't good together. But don't worry, it's not you, it's me.

All of my crunchy love,
Alyssa
