My piano-student parent who introduced me to this nougat (that I’ve talked about before) several years ago brought me some to Gabby’s lesson on January 11. I should have given it back. Or, I guess had some self-control.
The night before my trip to the ER, I joked to Ken, “Hm, I should probably stop eating this stuff. It’s most likely gluing my insides together.”
When the ER nurse asked me what I had eaten prior to my visit, I fessed up, “Well…uh…I think I ate a few too many candies.” Seriously, I end up in the ER with a nougat hangover?
I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, and I try to stay away from sugar and succeed most days, until I don’t.
One thing is for sure: I think my partying days are over. No more month-long birthday celebrating at restaurants/candy-bingeing for me.
About Marie de Haan
Marie is a gifted pianist, playing since the age of nine. As a teenager, she composed mainly instrumental piano music. She released her powerful debut single, “I Am Broken,” on October 22, 2020, a song whose creation drew heavily upon the trauma she endured as a victim of childhood sexual abuse. Marie held a benefit concert on September 10, 2021, in Skagit County. A portion of the proceeds went to CrossRoads Youth Ranch; this local organization—through equine therapy—empowers “at-risk and sexually exploited youth to heal, grow, and thrive.” She has continued to write music: Christian, folk, and country. Marie loves hiking, gardening, and photography. The Pacific Northwest—where she lives with her husband—is the backdrop for her favorite activities.
