Due to the maddening fact that her sinuses have clogged up with phlegm, ECL has decided that the time has finally come to deal with her everpresent sugar addiction.
She has gone off sugar.
So far, no one has died and the structural integrity of her apartment remains intact.
ECL has decided a two week moratorium on all things sweet and yummy may be sufficient enough to reset her body chemistry, but she realizes it might take a little longer than that.
just ONE cookie! just ONE cookie! i'll make it healthy, with rolled oats and nuts as long as i get chocolate chips! JUST ONE COOKIE PLEASE!
Obviously, ECL will refrain from baking during this time. Which makes recipies like this one for Barcelona Brownies cruel and unusual punishment.
brownies? just one? they're so little; they would hardly even count!
If you come into contact with ECL while she is "getting healthy" please approach her cautiously and from an angle. Do NOT come straight at her, especially if you are, or have been, eating something scrumptious and sweet. Please keep loud noises to a minimum and keep moving; a moving target is harder to hit. Whatever you do, do not give her any sugar, no matter what she may tell you. She may try very hard to get you to give her some; she may trick you. She may lie and cheat and insult your mother, your dog, and everything else you hold dear. Please, do not give in to her. Just endure the physical beating you are more than likely to receive and smile (inwardly; don't let her see) because you are helping your friend.
who's fucking idea was this anyway?
