In case I haven’t mentioned it lately, I believe my coworker may be a demon in disguise. Not quite the devil incarnate, but definitely a figure from the deepest, darkest corners of hades. She was sent to earth solely to keep good people, like me, from obtaining a desirable weight. Her instrument of torture today: RED VELVET CUPCAKES!
