I want the cookie. I can easily imagine myself walking up to the counter and asking for an oatmeal raisin cookie and then paying $1.07 and walking away with refined sugar goodness. It’s easy to imagine this, I’ve done it hundreds of times.
And yes I know, refined sugar isn’t good for you. I think it has to be better than the High Fructose Corn Syrup that’s usually present and come to think of it, present in my cookie.
It’s because of stress. I don’t like eating chocolate when I’m stressed. I usually head for pistachios or something else nutty. But the cookie is calling out to me.
I am strong. I shall not eat the cookie. I won’t even order the cookie. I have turned the page in the script and have moved on in this play of life.
I’ll just lick my desk when I get back to work and enjoy some dust. It’s low cal.
