My coworker W did not get the memo. His wife — who comes from a family of professional chefs/bakers — is a popular lifestyle blogger who literally has tens of thousands of fans following her recipes, and occasionally, he brings in her stuff.
He walked in today with this chocolate cake topped with Kahlúa-coffee icing, as well as a bag of white chocolate -macadamia nut cookies. It was hell, you guys. But fortunately, my coworker S, who did get the memo, was there to LITERALLY give me the Heisman and body-checked me back to my desk when she noticed I was sniffing the cake.
Then she put a whiteboard between my work space and the cake.
With friends like these, I can’t fail!!!
