I literally only have about 10 minutes to write this post. I decided to write it after I found two half-eaten donuts in a box fixing to be put into the garbage.
Now wait a minute, let me clarify something. The two donut halves were not eaten off of; they were cut in half. But yes, they were being put into the garbage, but they were in their original boxes. Is there a problem with this? It was in the teacher’s lounge. So what’s the big deal?
Evidently, there was nothing wrong with getting these two donut halves. Actually, I got no strange looks from anyone when I asked for them. The only thing I got criticized for was buying a Diet Coke.
“You’re not going to drink that are you?” “Well, yeah,” I replied. “I’m evening things out, that’s all.”
“That’s… that’s bad for you! It’s got aspartame in it!”
“True,” I said, “But the regular stuff has corn syrup in it.”
“Well, that’s better than aspartame,” they retorted with a sneer.
Then I said, as I walked away, “Yeah but how many corns had to die in order to make that corn syrup? Don’t you care about the corn?”
All things in moderation, folks. All things in moderation.
