If I didn't know it was impossible...

I'd think I was pregnant. Don't you even laugh at me. I'm serious. And this is why: this afternoon I was vacuuming my room and watching How I Met Your Mother (the perfect combination in my humble opinion) in preparation for a movie night with my cute friend Robyn. I was mostly focused on the whole vacuuming thing, but I looked up just as Lily was eating a pretzel. That's when it hit me: an absolutely insatiable desire, no, not desire, NEED for a pretzel. I was pretty sure that I was going to go completely batty if I didn't get a nice salty, crunchy pretzel in my mouth stat. Let me put this into better perspective for you: if Zachary Levi had shown up on my front step wearing a baseball cap, I still would have passed him over for the pretzel. Unless he was holding a bag of pretzels. Then all would have been good. (Insert swoony face here). Anyway, back to my story. Of course, I didn't have any in my house. There's practically no food in my house right now, especially because my refrigerator broke last weekend (another story for another post). Also, I don't usually get insatiable desires for pretzels, of all things. I won't lie to you. I don't think that I've purchased a bag of pretzels...ever. We always had them in the pantry growing up, but as an adult, they're not the first thing I reach for. Do you see my confusion? Praise the heavens, there is a Smith's not 20 seconds from my house. One little trip across the street was all it took for me to obtain my greatest desire. I proceeded to munch on pretzels instead of eating dinner (don't judge. I'm a grown up. I can do that).

Should this concern me?

I don't think you have to be pregnant to have cravings...at least I don't think so...I've been pregnant a lot...

I have to believe that you'd just have taken him to the store with you, or sent him to fetch some pretzels for you. Come to think of it, sending Zachary Levi on errands for me might be the yummiest thought of all...mmmmm...

And, if it makes you feel any better, I once had 2 weeks where I couldn't eat anything (including celery) but chocolate cake for 2 weeks without getting sick, and I was not embarazadas. :)
