The extra bowl of ice cream is like breakup sex. You’re sorry it’s over, and you just want a bit more before you rinse off the bowl, so you scoop a few more spoonfulls and sit down in a quiet place to guiltfully prolong the enjoyment. It tastes so much better but you never appreciate its fullness when you know each bite may be your last. You close the carton with sorroful longing. Still, you return, again and again, standing with the freezer door open, to sneak a few more spoonfulls directly from the carton before putting it away – each taste you savor as your last, but out of weakness you repeatedly return for more. Finally, when you’ve wasted far more time than you had hoped, you close the freezer and march bravely away from the fridge. You will not eat again for hours.

  1. I consistently feel sick after I overendulge in that fashion. Doesn’t stop me from desperately wanting to, however.
