Just Wondering...

So....let's just say, hypothetically, that someone you know has vowed to not eat a single piece of Halloween Candy this year because she has this horrible habit of eating just one teeny tiny piece which of course is just a gateway treat leading to her children's hard-won candy disappearing by the handful on an hourly basis.
This unnamed person is staying strong and truly hasn't opened even one wrapper for herself, has barely even had a sniff of Reeses or Almond Joy.... and then yesterday morning, as she is cleaning out under a desk, where every mobile bit of trash seems to congregate, she finds a single candy coated chocolate egg, a leftover runaway treat from Easter.

I ask you. Would you condemn her for a) eating something that may once have been delicious but was now a nasty bit of refuse and b) would that be a violation of her vow to eat not a bit of Halloween candy?  I mean, it was EASTER chocolate, not Halloween.


Just so you know, I didn't actually eat it.  But I DID think about it.

That's a tough one, but I would say it is definitely not Halloween candy, so wouldn't have broken your vow. I had five pieces on Halloween, felt awful afterward, and I haven't had any since--except a little candy corn a teacher gave me as a thank you for helping with her class Halloween party. I earned that candy at least. Still, I haven't been all good. Himself made Lion House rolls with honey butter yesterday and I may or may not have had five....

I would have eaten it but I can't keep my hands out of the leftover Halloween candy! I am impressed with your will power.

Verdict... Not guilty. By legal technicality.
