just regift the stuff you don't want. anytime there are sugary treats on offer ta my work they get hoovered in a blink. what other people eat is not my responsibility, but being gracious upon receiving something is a nice social convention that i choose to keep.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
– Ernest Hemingway
