  • RowdyTike is in the cave!

    Okay, so I have never done this before. Forums have never been my thing, as I really don't share unless I'm asked to, but accountability is important and so is having a peer group who understands. That is why I am here in the cave, I am seeking the warmth of the communal fire that is all of us here trying to be healthy. Outside the cave is where Tyrannosaurs Cheesecake and Cream-Cheese frosting-a-tops lurk and I do not always have the strength or good sense to run screaming from them. Since I rose from the primordial ooze that is the SAD, I have been hunted by the unrelenting beast known as the Pastry Slinging co-worker. You know what I mean, the one who is all motherly and sweet as she literally pushes the sugar down your gullet. "Eat up dear, I bake this especially for you!"
    In this instances I would love to go all Andy Samberg on her and "Throw it on the ground, Man!!". Alias though, that is not me, I cower behind prehistoric cubicle ferns, slowly trying to bury the treat from her view. "Oh no. don't get back to your desk, I want to see you enjoy the first bite!" The eager gleam in her eye is to much to bear and in the sage words of the Beastie Boys; "Sabotage!" Now your know my trials and the reason for my entering the cafe. Thanks for being here.

            I've been looking around the cave and I am thinking I may need to be a bit more ambiguous. My face is just out there for all of the cave to see. Oh well I did not come in to hide. I forgot to mention that I was assaulted by the baking co-worker and her posse of cupcakes. She held out the death cakes and waited expectantly. I took one and returned to my desk whilst another co-worker dove in. I barely escaped, then I hid it behind my computer so she would think I ate it. I know, "Oh spine where art thou?" I claim victory and shame in equal measure for after cupcake slinger left, I gave the flab grenade to another co-worker. Please don't kick me out the cave already, I am weak.

              Well, I am a doctor of sorts (the academic kind, not the medical but she doesn't need to know this). So if I order you to never touch one of those cupcakes again, then the next time she tries to peddle her insulin spiking drugs you can politely refuse saying, in all honesty, "Doctor's orders...."

                    Hmm. I recently had an unfortunate encounter with a series of Cadbury caramel eggs. Maybe the problem was that they are dinosaur eggs?

                        Your health is more important than her ego, RT. If you can't come right out and refuse just tell her you like to take it home and have it for dessert. Then work up to just saying no. But you know....there may be one or two other people in the office that would also love to turn down the cupcakes and are looking for someone else to do it first.

                        Welcome to the cave. Such a great first post Your avatar is just fine! I've been lazy but will upload a pic of myself eventually too.

                        "Flab grenade" and "death cake"....two phrases I wish I had chosen for my username....haha.

                              Thank you Mama Mare. I hope that as we walk in this SAD world we can always come back to the cave and share some laughs around the fire.
