I overslept today, no I mean really
overslept. I missed breakfast and rushed around (which is not so wise when
you have a broken toe) the Condo trying to get ready. I stuffed my lunch in a bag, grabbed my keyes and ran out the door. I was starving. Usually I will have either Raisin Bran or Grape Nuts, a hard boiled egg and even on occasion Oatmeal. No time for any of that today. Yea ok so I passed two McDonalds and a Dunkin Donuts on the way in. No thanks to either, plus I'm late at this point.
I arrive at work, punch in (non-Salaried employee here) and then swing by the Operator to pour myself a cup of Coffee, my stomach is grumbling
at this point. As I turn the corner, I catch a glimpse of the most breathtaking cheesecake
I have ever seen sitting right there next to the Coffee maker, a welcoming knife
lay by it's side. It had the most intricate top made of apples, brown sugar, crumbs & cinnamon, with streaks of caramel drawn carefully across at points.
A co-worker was busy cutting himself a slice from this majestic piece of culinary artwork. The inside revealed a thick graham cracker under crust, obviously crushed by hand. I could not believe my luck today and, brushing him (the co-worker) aside I grabbed the knife and portioned myself a huge slice, which I placed on a paper towel (no plates provided) and limped back into the MIS department where my cubicle awaited.
Sitting down, I turned on my PC, retrieved a plastic fork from my desk and carved out a large chunk. I was practically salivating in anticipation. Into my mouth it went, and then my half closed eyes shot wide open...."It can't be" I thought to myself, swallowing slowly
I took another bit from the slice and once again placed it in my mouth. "Yea, I thought so, Fucking
". I snatched a piece of paper towel, quietly wrapped up the remainder of the cake and deposited them both into the basket beside me.
There is a older lady who works two offices away from my own. Her name is Maryanne
. She likes moth balls, a lot
. As a matter of fact Maryanne protects not only her clothing, but the contents of her cabinets and refrigerator. Everything that comes from Maryanne or her home wreaks of Moth Balls. She wreaks of moth balls, Spring Summer Winter & Fall. She also is an avid baker, and often brings in brownies and cakes for all to share. This was the first Cheesecake I've seen her bring in. Five other people threw theirs out as well. I'm still hungry.
