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.
