I bought Oreo Cookies for our youth group snack a few weeks ago, then remembered that I wasn’t responsible for snacks that week. What I should have done at that point is put the cookies in my pantry and save them for the next time I did have snack responsibilities.
Instead, I took the box to work and proceeded to eat them in no time flat. Well, that’s kind of true. I ate the first two sections in a day each, then took a break for several days and polished off the final third a few minutes ago.
My real commentary isn’t on gluttony or how much the youth group accidentally influences my diet. It’s way more shallow than that.
There I was, sitting at my desk, thinking about how much I like Oreos, when I remembered the downside of that fake chocolatey goodness.

Fairly accurate. Fortunately, I have better manual dexterity and more self-awareness than most small children, so I can use a mirror to fix problems like that.
