Sometimes you just have one of those days. I had one yesterday, so I wasn't feeling very "social." How I was feeling yesterday made me think of a post I wrote a while back for my friends at The Good Men Project. So, that's what I'll share with you today.

Thankfully, I resisted enormous brownies yesterday, although the feelings were similar. I think many of us have them sometimes and they get to act themselves out in all sorts of interesting ways. 

Today is a new day, and I'm not craving brownies or morphine, so you can look forward to a great interview post tomorrow with Allie Munier, aka @broke207. Stay tuned.


Eating My Feelings

Rob Gould orders two brownies. Hilarity ensues.


Whole Foods Bakery Associate (WFBA): Can I help you?

Me: I’d like two of those huge brownies on the top shelf please.

WFBA: Would you like them in a bag or a box?

Me: You can put them in my hand.

WFBA: Both of them?

Me: Yes, both of them. Please just hand them to me.

WFBA: Do you want a napkin or anything? (Passing me the two brownies.)

ME: No, thank you. I’m all set.

WFBA: Please bring this label to the cashier. (Passing me the barcode/pricing label.)

Me: Thank you. Do you realize you’re staring at me with your mouth open?

WFBA: Sorry, will there be anything else?

Me: Got any morphine back there?

WFBA: Fresh out.

Me: Thanks anyway.
