Dangerous Situation

I have found myself in a dangerous situation this morning.

Remember that RA class I was sweating about last month? Well, now that we’re 6 classes in, it’s become a lot of fun and I enjoy it.

Today they students were supposed to have an activity that put collaboration “into practice.” I could have picked an activity that really challenged the students, but this is the week before Spring Break, so let’s be honest – I was working with zombies today.

Hence, I picked the activity Dot Dome. Each pair was given 20 Dots, (one of my favorite candies..how convenient..) 12 toothpicks and told to construct a dome with those fine materials.

So, they worked. I snacked. (Note: One Dot Dome in the background)

Yes, it’s empty. No I did not eat an XL box of Dots at 10 AM. Several delicious dots were left over in this box so I polished them off with the help of the students and the other co-instructor 🙂

But yesterday I bought two XL boxes of Dots. I didn’t want to come up short for our activity! While half of the second box was devoured by the students, no one wanted to take the it home. So where did it end up?

In my desk drawer. This is dangerous. Very, very dangerous. Should I rely on self control? Or pitch ’em? (So wasteful..)

To keep my myself away from the Dots, I left my first Operation Beautiful note in the bathroom at work 😀 I can cross it off my 101 in 1001 list!

I’m still learning my iPhone, just in case you couldn’t tell by my face 😉

Let’s chat: What’s your favorite candy? Self-control vs food sabotage? Have you ever left or found an Operation Beautiful note?
