Halloween for working adults tends to mean potlucks at work... I HATE POTLUCKS, for 2 key reasons:
- The food is always GREAT!
- The food is always a personal contribution from the individual who made it from scratch which adds a "guilt complex" to not eating it. If I choose not to eat, am I going to offend someone?
The best anti-potluck defense strategy though is probably just to spend the majority of my day during potlucks in my office. If I bring in my own food and just avoid the break room all together I won't find myself in awkward situations of trying to justify to someone why I don't want to eat their triple-decker chocolate cake with raspberry topping.
I better get my discipline in order now because we're approaching the season of never ending eating, Thanksgiving and Christmas. I'm down to only having three pairs of pants which are comfortable and I refuse to buy a larger size...
Come on wall against food, kick in, kick in!
