So I meet my friend to go work out last night, and some of the people there are discussing the virtues of different girl scout cookies. I mention that I’d had three (gasp!) of those caramel ones before heading there from a box that was being shared at work. My friend glares at me and starts “SEEEA-diver! Why did you do that?!?”. I thought she was kidding, but she continued for a while about how now the exercise was going to be for nothing, and I couldn’t go around eating those things, had to change my habits, etc. I got berated over three cookies!
Now, I know she means well, and is looking out for me and all that. She often fixes really healthy snacks for us, which is nice. I’ve even managed to start liking some of the rabbit food she’s introduced me to. But damn it, part of the reason I exercise IS so I can have a cookie if I freaking want one! I don’t want to be scrutinized.
Is this common among female friends?
Definitely mundane and pointless, but I’d rather vent here rather than make an issue of it. Don’t do this to your friends- it’s annoying, and they may hurt you if you try to get between them and a fillet mignon.
