(Still) Not Like Other People

That's the picture my best friend took when I parted ways with her and her friend that Thursday night in New York. I don't care for sweets. My friend posted that pic on her facebook and women wrote things like, "I want one of everything!" and "That's making me so hungry!
~
Ewwww! Not only does nothing in that picture make me hungry in the least, but I find most of it repulsive. I studied the picture to see if I could find anything at all that I could eat and finally noticed the kiwi slices at the bottom. I could eat those. And I love strawberries, but upon close inspection the strawberries, as well as the other fruit all seem to be covered in some sort of sugary syrupy something. What a waste. But I could eat the kiwi slices.

When I saw this picture on fb, I thought two things. First, that you did not take this picture and would not be interested in this stuff at all. I know your repulsion of very sweet things. Secondly, I was one of those that thought - I want one of everything! You know how much I love sweets. I'm pretty sure those fruit tarts on the middle shelf are dusted with powdered sugar, and the fruit tarts on the bottom are probably placed on top of a creme brulee filling. But it's really the cannolis that caught my eye, and chocolate covered cannolis...YUM! Next time I get to NYC, I'll have to find a great bakery!

I am envious, as one of the plagues of my life is my love of sweet stuff. The good news of getting older is that my tastes are trending more towards quality sweet stuff--so I can bypass premade, dry, junky sweets now.

Lucky you, chica!

I went back and read all about your Birthday Trip---And--A BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, MY DEAR....It looks like you had a very good trip all around and a GREAT 50th Birthday!
Pretty Pretty Easter Eggs, too....Very Colorful and I love all the Pastel Colors!

You are lucky you don't like Sweets---Almost anything chocolate speaks to me loud and clear--Though, not much else in the "sweet" department! (lol)

Now. If that case were full of, say, cheese and olives...I'd take a brick of brie, some cheddar, gorgonzola, and bleu-cheese stuffed olives. To start.

But I'm with you, not even tempted by this showcase.
