Of Frosties and Free Will



I can easily ride past Wendy's without stopping for a Frosty.

I do not need a Frosty every time I pass Wendy's on the commute home.

I am fully capable of riding right past Wendy's on my commute.

My commuter is able to stay on the trail as I ride right past Wendy's.

It's not like I have to have a Frosty every time I commute.


- tob I can quit any time I want to

It's not like you just WANT a frosty you NEED a frosty. Studies show that chocolate milk is a great recovery drink. Since Frosty's are in the same family you NEED a frosty.

I came across your blog in a round about way--following links from one blog to another...probably from Fat Cyclist to begin with. I enjoy your writing and your humor, and I love the baiku. I've been teaching my ESL students to write Haiku...so much fun!

Since Frosties are good for you and you love them, why the angst?

I used to ride home late at night, and always passed a doughnut shop with an aroma that drifted for half a block. The only thing that saved me was not carrying any money.

@MIike J -- agreed, I know that article, but waiting until I get home would save $$ and calories. I'm figuring I can count it as pat of the celebration of Bike to Work day!

@Doozy -- thanks for stopping and commenting!

@Terry -- it's the "good for you" part....

@Tim -- good strategy!

Funny how my bike has bout's of the 'turn into Wendy's' virus as well...

I can quit any time I want... yes, the classic chant of the hopeless addict still in denial. You KNOW how many more miles you'll have to ride to counter it. As Tom Waits sings, take the long way home.

The fist step is to admit you have a problem.

Please, whatever you do, do not go to Subway first, get a chocolate chip cookie, and use it as a Frosty delivery device.
I have been there. It is a long, dark, road back....I found myself on the corner begging for Subway reward cards and Wendy's coupons. If it wasn't for Oprah and my forth coming book, I'd be dead.

The Donut Guy said...

Yeah right.

I have an ice cream habit that will put your frosty habit to shame:-)

The Old Bag said...

@Wheel -- GUILTY!

@Badger -- Tom Waits...gotta dig him off the shelf

@Pete -- problem??

@WB -- choc chip cookie delivery device...that sounds awesome!

@George -- I grew up with a lot of ice cream, but have scaled back in my later years.

I would get two frosties if I were you.

Food, dinner bells, going home... the ringing in my ears is driving me out into the street. I need a ride, bad! And no, I can't quit anytime I want... It's funny what things draw the most comments!

And one more thing (stolen from pilderwasser's latest post)


you may find yourself
in a place where

Can’t Do
overlaps
Can’t Do Without

and you may ask yourself
how did I get here?

Hey, OB, I was referred by The Badger and I am enjoying noodling around on your blog. I'm glad you caught the humor in the words I used to describe the LV prima donna cycling club. More later ~ I want to absorb a little more of your aura before commenting further. By the way, I'm a girl who has had to fight the Frosty urge a time or two!

I love the diagram!

And as I'm reading this I'm working my through a pint of Edy's butter pecan ice cream...
