Day 223: Life’s Like a Box of Chocolates

When I got to work yesterday morning, I found this box of chocolates waiting for me at my door. So what if it was accompanied by a long list of edits to the 30-page program I’m working on with the coworker? Whether it was a bribe or not, the chocolate was definitely appreciated later in the day.

A box of Sweet Granada Chocolates (from Emporia, Kansas) from a coworker.

Day 69: Temptation

Right after I gave up high fructose corn syrup for Lent, I came to work to find a huge bowl of gooey, chocolatey popcorn. One of the ladies at work has made it several times, and I have to admit that it’s pretty tasty. I’m sure there’s HFCS in it somewhere. I kind of felt like I was part of a Biggest Loser temptation challenge as I was smelling the chocolate and taking photos. I was the winner … this time.
