Friday treats day at work today, the first of the school year. The donuts called to me as soon as I walked through the door. They greeted me. They begged me to come over and investigate, to take the tiniest taste, just a bite, a morsel, a small sampling that would lead to eating the whole thing. They turned baleful and stared me down throughout lunch, their evil intent hidden by sugar glazes and sprinkles. It took all my strength and then some to not take one. I kept telling myself over and over, "No, no, no..." and in the end, I triumphed over them. This time. Whew! It was a mental workout!
