Re: Heard in the Office Today

At a breakfast meeting today, I had to order the only vaguely paleo option, a bacon and egg toasted sandwich. Said delicacy arrives on a plate and I immediately liberate the goodness from the bread and start to eat the bacon and eggs with gusto (big workout yesterday makes for a hungry boy the next day!).

College says, aren't you going to eat the bread? and me being my usual self say, "nope bread isn't in my diet". College is totally perplexed and says, "but you just ate all that fat and cholesterol!" "yep" is say. He says but you aren't fat, you must work out all the time." Me "no just my CF stuff 5 times a week (he has a vague understanding of CF from me telling him about it) so I exercise maybe 7 or 8 hours a week give or take" He says, "and you eat like that!" "Your arteries must be clogged"

I just shook my head and kept shoveling the goodness!

Re: Heard in the Office Today

My boss's birthday is today, and someone brought in a cake for it. After turning it down (normally I'd be all over any free food, but I've been eating crap all week and I can't shake this cold, so unless it's going to help I'm not touching it) I've watched people I've never seen before sneak up, take a slice while muttering something about diets or weight or fat. It's kind of scary, actually. No one has stopped to ask what the cake is for or if they could have some.

I love that, it's like watching cockroaches or Gollum from LoTR sneak up and go 'my precious' before they dissapear into the darkness. I tried trapping one once, but they are tenacious fighters, let me tell you...

Re: Heard in the Office Today

Yesterday I said loudly to my supervisor "My friends sister is on that absurd HCG diet!"
and my boss's eyes got wide and he said "Shhhh. Half the women in the office are on that diet!"
I look up to see very many angry eyes glaring at me.

I'd be angry too if I was on an HCG diet.

So... did you have to run for it, or did you just make your peace with God and hope they finished you off quickly?

Probably didn't have to, those women probably didn't have the energy to chase him

I just looked around then slowly backed into my office and shut the door.
