I haven't picked up the needles all week. Sorry. So there's no knitting post today. Instead I will expound about treat day at work. As an avid admirer of baked goods, I have a lot to say about treat day. However, today I will limit myself to discussing treat disdain. There is no better way to exhibit your deep disdain for your coworkers than bringing in a lame treat. Even forgetting the treat is not as bad as bringing in a lame treat. And by lame treat, I don't mean dispensable forays into the kitchen, I mean two coffee cakes. These are not just any coffee cakes, they are the orange sticker supermarket clearance coffee cakes. Coffee cakes with the orange sticker have the inedible distinction of being too dry and too sweet. They represent the fruitcake of treat offerings. Take that coworkers! I give two coffee cakes about you guys. Of course, two coffee cakes can only feed a few people so there's not even enough to go round. I actually admire the aplomb of subliminally expressing disdain with the office via treat. There's something there. And at least it won't knock anybody off their diet.
