Universe, Please Don't Be So Obvious

The universe is testing me and not in a very subtle way. Just arrived via Fed-Ex for me… a big gift box of chocolates, candy covered pecans, dark chocolate covered honeycomb and white chocolate covered pretzels. Just when I thought all the bribes from the sales people were over. Under any normal circumstances I’d be doing a big fat happy dance. Today though, it’s just torture. I’ve put the treats in the kitchen and I know the piggies in this office will sniff it out within minutes, thank goodness.

Brutal!

However, if your office is like where I work, the seagulls will make short work of those goodies!

OMG - I don't know if I could resist it. Bravo to you. Though, I can say ~ yesterday I had a similar temptation. Greg brought home a King Cake. He has diabetes, so he couldn't eat too much of it. I don't want to, so instead, I brought it over to my brother's house. Roda (sister-in-law) is from Dubai and never tried King Cake, so it was a treat for them and OUT of the house for us!

Heh. The last box of candies I got went straight from my hands into the trash... then I thought about it for a minute, fished the box out, wiped it off, wrapped it, and gave it to someone else as a late holiday present.

Bad me!

I was salivating just read your description (especially the chocolate covered pretzels!) so I can only imagine how tough it is for you to have had the goods in your hands! YIKES!

Chocolate-covered honeycomb? I would have broke down and had some. Good on ya for being strong enough to resist such a tasty temptation!

There comes a time in every woman's life when she just has to say, "No thank you!".

Oh my! That would be pure torture for me as well! lol

Missicat said...

I fortunately also have an office like that....has helped me resist temptation! Though it is painful watching others enjoy the chocolately goodness...

Better in their tummies than yours. Well, not really better, but good that your not eating them.

Why oh why does it seem so hard some days! I totally commend you for putting the chocolates in the kitchen to be scarfed up by those that don't care or don't need to watch what they eat!
