I haven't bought grapes for about 18 months, ever since I started going to slimming classes and found out how calories they contain. When I used to buy them it was three bags at a time and I could eat one bag in an evening without blinking. As I find it impossible to have grapes in the house without pigging out on them I don't buy grapes.
But yesterday I was wandering the fruit aisle in a well-known supermarket (I'm not going to say which; you'll see why) when I spotted some delicious-looking red seedless grapes. Now when I was going to buy them I used to taste one to make sure they were up to quality - I would excuse this act of theft by saying to myself that I would buy enough to justify a sample.
Well, yesterday I was overcome by temptation ... and I stole a grape! And I wasn't even planning on buying any.
Oh the guilt. I am sorely tempted to go in and confess but I fear I might be laughed out of the shop. Or arrested.
