Google is Making Me Fat!

Remember the quarter of a chocolate cookie, wrapped gently in the pretty orange and black napkin, and carried tenderly home for Mommy by your 6 year old child after a Halloween party? How about the little paper cup filled with goldfish, raisins and candy saved all day and brought to you by chubby little hands with a kiss? For some strange reason, carried home with love, they tasted better than any creation by a French pastry chef, didn't they?

Well, wonderful treats from Google have been coming home lately, innocent little scrumptious surprises in unmarked, plain, white carryout containers. Opened up, they reveal luscious packages of chocolate creations that begged to be sampled, nibble by nibble, until lo and behold, all that's left are a few crumbs. With good intentions to save half for Ray, but not stopping, I realize I have eaten every morsel. Oh, no matter, he is watching his weight anyway, and would have just complained about the extra calories. What must it be like to have original baked creations being prepared for your consumption each day, waiting to be taken. How does one stay in the office knowing something delicious is baking in the oven? How does one stay under 200 pounds? Probably a good thing I work for a nonprofit!
