You don't know what you've got til it's gone

You know when you're nearing the end of eating a bag of candy or chips and you accidentally eat the last of it all without realizing it? And it really upsets you?

You go down for one last bit of M&Ms/Sun Chips/Circus Peanuts/Funyuns/Pork Rinds/Whatever and there's nothing left. I don't know about you, but it always puts me off kilter. It's like, "Hey! Crap. I wasn't mentally prepared for this snacking experience to end."

If I had paid attention and known that last bite was the end of the road, I would have put a little more thought--more emotional heft--into the whole thing.

Totally feel you on that one. I was eating some leftover pizza the other day and I ate it all and was not prepared for it to be gone.
