My one and only
Ok, here it is, my first love. Thanks to Nestle, who has given my husband some fierce competition. I seriously think, my husband thinks, I would give him up before even considering giving the creamer up. He may be onto something. This is the first thing I see every morning and you can bet the last thing I see every night. It has been this way for at least 12 years, when I first discovered they had flavored creamer in a little 7-11 at Ft. Sill Oklahoma. My craving for it has never lessended. My first thought before leaving Ok. for Germany in 1997 was "I wonder if they have this over there in the Commissary." I was thinking "Cause if they don't my husband may have to do an unacommpanied tour, because I won't leave the US if I can't have my creamer." My second thought was "maybe my parent's could ship it over in some dry ice." Now that is really desperate. How much do you think that would of cost? I would of probably paid an arm and a leg for it, make that 2 legs, but thank God, the commissary in Hanau Germany had it and my husband called to let me know as soon as he found it. He practically ran out of the barracks looking for it not so sure that if he didn't find it I would actually come to Germany. This is definately my obsession. My other dirty little secret is I pay $37.50 for Gevalia every month just so I can have my creamer in one of the most awesome brands of coffee I ever tasted. This love affair also started in Ft. Sill, Ok. thanks to my friend Ramona who gave me the memebership, and the free coffee maker for my birthday. Anyone else with an obsession they want to come clean about? This means you mom. Remember your buying quilting material addiction? No matter how much material my mom buys, she can always find more she needs, in any given place, at any given time, that their is material around. Like mother like daughter wouldn't you say?
