Resistance is futile #NaPoWriMoDayTwentyNine

"Resistance is futile"
Says the ginger cake
"You want a piece of me
Give in for goodness sake"

       "I will NOT eat you
       No matter what you say
       Even when you wink
       And call to me that way"

"One piece can not hurt
Just one hundred calories
Save instead on lunch
I'm much nicer than cheese"

       "Stop, you're tempting me
       I will not give in today
       I will NOT eat you
       No matter what you say"

"Resistance is futile
Perhaps you're strong right now
But I know if I stay here
You'll eat me in a while"

Linked up at Sunday scribblings.  I may or may not resist the ginger cake I'm presenting at toddlers today, watch this space.

I'd throw out the cake, if I were you. It'll throw you off the diet wagon. I know from experience. Clever use of the prompt.

Ginger cake is certainly a wily critter and very persuasive. A fun post!

Fabulous and very topical for me! I am on a weight watchers diet and am struggling this week as i have birthday cake left over from a party at the weekend and it is sooooo tempting!
So glad to have found your blog! It is super x

Me oh my! There are Krispy Kremes in my pantry! I will have to give up food for the remainder of the day!

Sherry Blue Sky said...

Yes! I would have eaten it before the conversation even got started!

Perhaps a compromise?

Who needs cake, when you can have cheese :-)
And did you? have a bite?
