Unconscious Eating

A man went to see an elderly friend in the nursing home. As he sat there visiting with the old lady, he saw a jar of peanuts sitting on her bedside table. Without asking her, he reached for the peanuts, twisted the jar open, and started eating the nuts. Before he knew it, lost in conversation, he had emptied the container.

Feeling somewhat guilty, he said to her, "I'm so sorry for eating all your peanuts. As soon as I leave, I'll drop by the store and buy you another jar of nuts."

"No, sonny," answered the old lady, "I've done sucked all the chocolate off of them."

Watch out for that unconscious eating.
