Let them eat cake.

So I recently started a job at a little deli called Small Planet. I like it. But I have been thinking that it probably isn't good for me... Picture this.

So a couple times a week I bring home lunch from work (because I get a great discount) and I usually bring home a desert too. So today I brought home a Chocolate Eruption cake which is a chocolate mousse cake with cheese cake chunks in the middle and a bunch of chocolate pieces on top. Basically it's the desert equivalent of heaven. (see bellow).
I couldn't find anything to watch on TV so I decided to check Hulu and found that I could watch Marie Antoinette. So I am sitting there with my chicken salad sandwich watching this movie and wishing that I could wear fancy dresses and eat cake all the time. Once I finish my sandwich (which was divine) I get out my little slice of cake. I then proceed to lay back on the couch (which is probably not the safest position to eat in) and eat my cake. I found myself taking little bites and then swinging my fork around like I was conducting music, much like Marie might do. It was almost as if I were wearing a fancy dress and eating cake at Versailles. Then after my food coma passed and I came to, I realized that I was just a girl wearing a t shirt and jeans sitting on a couch eating a chocolate eruption cake and watching a movie. Then I realized that life isn't so bad after all.

Surely you can see how this might be a problem.

Please. Let me eat cake. and not get fat. I mean really. How did they do it? In that entire movie I never saw anyone eat anything that was not a desert.
