The Cream Cheese Made Me Do It

Dear R.,

I know it was understood that I would purchase a container of Ben's Cream Cheese for you every week, when I bought mine. I know it was cruel of me to tempt you and then not deliver the goods. Believe me, I had every intention of doing so this week. In fact, I bought two containers of it. But temptation got the best of me. I got greedy and I had to keep them for myself. You see, Izzy and I have already made the first container disappear. Between breakfast, snacks and sneaking spoonfuls, it was unavoidable and I simply can't imagine going the rest of the week without it.

I blame you anyway. You had to go and mention those Blueberry Cream Cheese Scones. At first they sounded like an abomination but I am definitely warming up to the idea. Maybe if I make those for us for Sunday afternoon, you will forgive me.. Next week I promise to buy at least three packages. I won't let you down.

I simply can't believe it my friend. You had been so quiet all week and I did not want to mention anything, but I wanted to interrogate you about my cream cheese, especially when I had the previous week's fix still in my fridge because of that funny taste.

In fact, I spoke to you today and I asked you if you had not been to WF's because I wanted to find out without pressing what happened to the promised goods.

Then after you admonished me for bragging about those exquisite cream cheese and blueberry scones from Alice's Tea Cup and what you have actually been plotting behind my back is to make the recipe with MY cream cheese. Shame on you heartbreaker. The only thing that can possibly make it up to me is gorging on my stolen cream cheese and blueberry scones on our way to the film.

I knew something was terribly fishy.

I was actually looking out for your best interests my dear..seeing as how you don't consume dairy fats. I wouldn't want to sully your body with cholesterol-laden goods. I may just have to keep those scones to myselfand send you to join Izzy on Fibber Island.

Well, I have decided to take you up on your moderation schpiel (spelling) and save all my indulgences touse on Ben's (addictingly delicious) Cream Cheese and you scones of course.
