I Need Help!

     Hello My Name Is Karen....
                        And I have a secret to tell you.  I am an addict.  It's true.  It's something that I am not happy to admit, but they say that admitting you have a problem is the first step in dealing with it right?  And, well,  I have a problem.  I can't help myself.  I crave it.  I want it.  I desire it.  I dream of it.  What is the object of my desire?  This thing that keeps me seeking more and more, never satisfied constantly craving? 
                                                      CHOBANI GREEK YOGURT

Sound crazy?  I know, it was to me to.  I kept seeing those commercials on TV all the time about this yogurt and couldn't  understand the hype.  I mean,  yogurt is yogurt, right?  WRONG!  Oh, so wrong. 
I've had yogurt, lots and lots of yogurt in my time.  As a matter of fact, I eat yogurt for lunch almost every day.  I snack on yogurt, I eat it plain, with fruit, with granola, I use it as a dip, with vegetables, on my burger from time to time, and I've even been known to eat it frozen!  I am not a yogurt virgin.  I've been around the yogurt block-hell, I've been around the world!  And now these Chobani people come on TV telling me that they have re-invented yogurt.  I am supposed to believe that it is so good that someone would ride their bicycle to Vermont to see where it is made?  Right!  Like that is really going to happen. 
But, everywhere I went someone was eating the stuff.  I couldn't take the pressure.  I had to try it, just to put to rest the rumors.  To find out for myself the truth of the matter.  So I bought one container and at work one day, I took a bite.  Hmmm, not bad, I thought.  Then I took another.    And suddenly

I swear I heard angels singing!  It was like the gates of heaven opened up.

Okay, that might be a slight exageration, by only a slight one.  OMG, the stuff is sooooo good.  I couldn't get enough of it.  And the worst part of it is that my husband thinks it is expensive.  Like you can put a price on such golden goodness.  Huh!  So, I was sneaking it.  I'd go to Target, or Wal-Mart which were near to my work and store several containers at work.  Then I'd go to Bloom and get a few there and put them in the downstairs refrigerator.  I was secretly stashing Chobani in every refrigerator I could think of.  Jim would go to the grocery store and buy me 3 Chobani's and 30 Lite n' Lively because they were 10 for $10 or something!  The only way I could get more of my beloved Chobani was to get rid of the other stuff, which I had now grown to hate.  This is a real dilema here.  And to make matters worse,  I didn't have any coupons for Chobani and Jim will not buy without coupons.  The only way around this was to do the shopping myself and if I do the shopping that would mean I'd have to do the cooking too.  Now, I may be desperate, but I'm not stupid!!
So, I went online and joined the Chobani fanclub.  I got coupons!  Then I sent Michelle to Sam's Club and she found it there-a case of 12 for $11.78.  Now I'm no mathematician, but even I can figure out that that is less than $1. a container!  Heaven!  Does life get any better than this I ask you?
