Time again to buy extra toothpaste and throw that “diet” *cough-cough* out the window, as there’s now more snackin’ calories in our office than our country’s GNP. Well, OK, not that many, but you get the idea. Gift basket upon gift basket, amongst many other goodies that put your willpower to the test: “I can resist! I can resist! No I can’t!”
Also during the holiday season onslaught, we usually get box after box of fresh-made local stuff, including hot Manapua & Dim Sum from the “Big Three” (Chun Wah Kam, Libby’s & Char Hung Sut), Sunny Side Pies (Wahiawa) and Nanding’s Spanish Butter Rolls, to name a few.
I had such a carbo’ sugar rush just from eating a couple Kona Coffee Chocolate covered Macadamia Nuts and a handful of Cinnamon Peanut Butter Mari Mix, I felt like I needed to run laps up and down our office hallway to wear it off. Next time I pass by the snack table, I must resist!
