I have a sweet tooth. If there is anything sweet in the house, I sneak it when the kids aren't looking.
No shame.
No will-power.

So tonight, as I was sweeping up the kitchen near our gingerbread train creation, I noticed a lone gumball, and proceeded to pop it in my mouth. I tried to chew it, and then realized....

...it was a marble.

Ouch! My parents gave the kids a package of little round jawbreaker-type candies at Thanksgiving, and they call those marbles. But I'm sure they taste much better than the real thing.
