The Question Club
So I'm on a diet, and I've been very very good. Salad, fruit, lots and lots of water. Went swimming for the first time today. (Only for twenty minutes, but damn, it was kind of cold in thar.)|
...and yet, it seems, at least once a week, this woman I work with brings in a platter of danishes and strudels to share.
I've tried "no thanks." I've tried repeating it. I've tried explaining I'm on a diet. It seems she will not take no for an answer in that "oh, come on, live a little..." kind of laughing way. And she really is a genuinely sweet person, all told.
How do I say no so it counts? Yeah, it's me taking the danish every time, I acknowledge that, but damn, I feel like I'm doing it to get her to leave me alone; and she can see my entire workspace so she'll know if I just trash it. :( And plus it's always around that mid-morning break-y time when I am feeling rather snacky and the willpower is so eager to ebb...
