Cookies, just for fun

I have a problem. Name: sweet tooth. Why are some of the most irresistible things in life actually the worst for you?

On second thought, the problem that's bigger than the sweet tooth is the AVID baker that I live with...who brings me a cookie fresh out of the oven -- every batch. And no, I don't ask her to.

So here's the solution I've come to. Eat all the goods -- and quick -- so I don't have to worry about eating them anymore. I've discovered that would only work if there weren't a constant stream of freshly baked calories in the kitchen. It also doesn't say much for self-control. Or a nauseous stomach. Or the fact that I'd like to fit comfortably inside one airplane seat, not two.

And is it wrong to want just a taste of sweet after a meal...every meal? I say no. I'm a runner! I eat salad. That's my justification. What's yours?
