|MY CO-WORKERS ARE NOT THE KIND OF PEOPLE that can be bought. (Although if you're going to try to buy us, gifts of chocolate are an excellent way to start.)|
We got free samples of this new "caffeinated" chocolate bar called Awake at work the other day. And let me tell you, offering free chocolate to my co-workers is like offering an ugly dress to Adele. We just can't resist it.
We tore into it like hyenas, and then immediately started bitching.
"This is bogus!" "It tastes like talcum powder." "I don't feel any more awake at all."
And yet . . . and yet, the entire box of 12 chocolate bars magically disappeared within minutes. And if you brought another 12 bars to us, they would have disappeared too.
Because we are basically sugar sluts who will eat ANYTHING with the word 'chocolate' in it.
