The temptations of peanut brittle

The temptations of peanut brittle

Once upon a time, my wife and I decided to treat ourselves and go out and see a movie. As a type 1 diabetic I'm subject to all the temptations of everyone else. We purchased some peanut brittle at the candy bar, an unusual weakness for me as I don't think I've enjoyed it before or since.

We nestled into our seats and started munching on the brittle, awaiting the start of the main feature. A young lady sat down next to me and I offered her some of our treat. She said 'no thank you, I'm a diabetic'. A tsunami of embarrassment swept over me. It looked good on me!
