And they never come alone: they are a phantom pack, a school of pirahnas, a regiment of soldiers relentlessly marching towards me to the cadence of "Eat me...eat me...eat me!!!!"
They know my constitution is weak and will power is an abstract concept.
And they look so pretty. But it is a farce, a sham. I know what they are made of...butter! sugar! sugar! butter!Just eat one, I say to myself. Okay two, no, five. Yes, five at 5 o'clock...8 at 8...9 at 10. Oh, the headaches, the blubbery middle, the stretched seams.
Everyone tries to placate me. "You just had twins. You look great.", they say.
But I know the truth...
And so does that gosh darn cookie(s).
