Drinking.  Eating.  Money.  Exercise.  Sex. TV.  Smoking.  Video Games.

All of these can lead to excess.

When I look at the material things in my life, nothing even comes close to the word “excess.”  And my lifestyle?  No excess there as well.

When I saw the subject for today’s writing challenge I thought, “If I were to overdo something to excess, what would it be?”

I can’t see drinking to excess.  I would end up barfing every morning.  Smoking?  ALLERGIES!  Honestly, the only thing I can see going south would be eating.  But what have I eaten to an actual excess?

Time for a bit of honesty.

At one point in my lifetime, I have eaten the following foods to excess:

  1. The Crisco-style frosting on large, Food Lion birthday cakes.  Not the whipped cream.  The hard sugar mixed with lard.  I have actually snuck the fridge door open, grabbed handfuls of the stuff and shoved them in my mouth while no one was looking.
  2. Homemade rice crispie treats.  What is it about the homemade ones?  They scratch up your mouth and get your hands all sticky.  But during my lifetime I have indeed had moments of eating them to excess.
  3. Taco Bell.  Not now, but way back in my college days.  You drink, you go to Taco Bell, you EAT.
  4. Hot, greasy and fresh Krispy Kreme donuts.  Sigh.  And their hard Crisco style filled donuts?  See the Crisco-Sugar theme going on here?
  5. Dolmades.  Homemade Greek dolma.  One birthday I ate so much that I hurled.  And then proceeded to eat my mother’s angel food cake with 7 minute icing.  Another amazing excess.  Happy Barfing Birthday.

So there you have it.  My downfalls to excess.

I am dying to know what you have done or could potentially do in excess.  Food?  What kind?  Cigarettes?  Alcohol?  Porn?  Shoes?  (Come on Nicky.  We ALL know.)
