True Story Tuesday - The Pickle

Ladies you know how it is when you are
pregnant you do get those cravings….they do exist!

When I was pregnant with my daughter
who is now 29 years old, I loved
chocolate éclairs! They were so yummy.
I have never had a craving for sweet’s
before then and only once since then
(peri menopause), I could take them or
leave them but this craving I could not
seem to leave! If I remember correctly
that was the only craving I had while I carried Amber.

Cory was a bit different. When I carried
him 23 years ago I craved dill pickles!
Maybe that was the difference between
girl (sweets) and boy (sour)! Who knows…..

Anyway, I loved a good dill pickle and
I pretty much had one to two a day.
Yes ladies, I took in all that salt. But
let me also say that I barely gained
over 20 lbs with Cory, with Amber
it was 53 (all those éclairs)!!!

I will never forget being at work one day
and going to the fridge to get my last
pickle in the jar. Okay, it was so bad
that I actually carried a jar of pickles to
work and ate off them till they were
gone. Anyway, our fridge was in the
typesetting room of the printing
division for the State of Tn. I was a
camera/darkroom operator at this
time….oh sorry, back to the story at
hand, it was lunch time (pickle time)!
As I got my JAR with only one pickle
left in it out of the fridge and I walked
pasted the typesetting machine,
carrying my jar down by my side and
holding it by the lid, I hit my hand
on the edge of the typesetting machine
……and yes, I dropped my jar!

There laid broken glass, pickle juice
and my one LAST pickle on the floor
of the type room! It was a craving, a
strong one that had me thinking of
that pickle an hour before lunch, had
me wanting that pickle so bad. And
thanks to that craving, I almost sat
down and cried for my lost, dirty,
covered with glass, laying on the floor,
last pickle.
