Indulge Yourself

Think about a treat that you haven't had in a while — one so delicious that just thinking about it makes you smile. Today, don't settle for any substitutes or next-best things. Take a vacation from all things practical, and go find exactly what you want.

  • It might be a childhood treat that you once adored. Maybe it's a special combination — like Oreo cookies dipped in a tall glass of milk or apple pie with a wedge of cheddar cheese. (My mother used to say, "Apple pie without cheese is like a kiss without a squeeze." While I no longer live in New England, that treat combination is like a mini-vacation for me.)
  • What makes your mouth water? Rich Belgian chocolate? Wickedly robust coffee? Walk the extra block for the ice cream flavor that you really want.
  • Instead of drinking water from that week-old plastic bottle, find a goblet and a slice of lemon.

Forget the food police, and lick your fingers if you want to!
