I rooted about in the supply cabinet for crackers – none. All I found was a couple tablespoons of brown sugar in a plastic container, with a scoop thoughtfully placed inside. That was for coffee. There was no coffee. There were, however, steno notebooks, staple wires, and reams of copy paper.
In a tall filing cabinet I found toilet paper and a bag of 3-in-1 coffee sachets. No crackers. They were all gone.
My stomach growled. I tried to think – where else could I have stashed food?
My bottom roll-out drawer was empty. I could have sworn I had chocolate-covered cookies in there. My last hope was the round candy tin. I found no crackers – I had eaten them all – but I did find chocolate.
The sun shone even if it was nearly seven o’clock at night, birds sang and flowers bloomed and butterflies flitted around my head as I reached for one Ricoa Flattops, peeled it, and popped it into my mouth. Ahhh. Sweet bliss of sugar rush. I was renewed, recharged, re-energized!
It pays to stash candy in the office for munchie emergencies. I highly recommend doing so.
