Along with the giggles, teaches you to be a bit more aware of word usage too.

As kids that would have been full chuckle-city route, as you say.

I can always tell when my wife wants junk food...she calls me asking if I need anything from the store, hoping I will ask for something naughty.

You know that our female hormonal cycles kick in a few days prior and can wreak havoc with our discipline where food is concerned; I used to have a real problem with chocolate binges even though I didn't really want it, but somehow managed to break the cycle.

Of course, it may just be junk food likes but thought I'd throw it out there anyway. M&Ms are good, at least they have nut in right?

At least they have some nutritional value.

Both myself and my wife are BIG stress eaters.

I know when I get stressed, I tend to start biting my nails...that's the first sign and sometimes I'm not even aware I'm stressed until I start on the nails; then I clamp down on it, sharpish. But stress eating is bad because then you're stuck with weight gain.

The key for me is to find friendly foods to indulge upon. I can eat 10 tomoatoes and it's better than 10 cup cakes...

At least that's a sensible strategy, and it's good for you. Win-win under stress eating situation, can't be bad.
