Haven't eaten Oreos in 22 years.

by DynamicDbytheC on February 19, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Was in work lounge and there on the table sat a roll of Oreos. One woman proudly announced she hadn't had a single Oreo in 14 months. I chimed in about my 22 years sans Oreos. She mumbled B$#@! in a playful manner as she watches her weight and me not so much. I then informed her that I do not LIKE Oreos, have no will-power and she should watch me when salty chips, my weakness, are on the table.
