No Eating Out Challenge – Donuts?
January 16, 2010 10 Comments
So, I’ve come across an interesting situation with my “no eating out challenge”. That is the matter of donuts.
Let me explain.
Each week someone in our lab brings donuts to group meeting. It rotates every week. Technically I guess we could bring something else, but since the Dunkin Donuts is just a block or so away, that tends to be what people get.
Next week is my week to bring donuts. And I have to bring breakfast, no doubt about that, but I’m not sure if this counts as eating out since it is kind of a job related expense.
I could technically even get the donuts in the grocery store, but it all amounts to the same thing, doesn’t it?
I’ll probably not even eat any of the donuts, either, since I’ll just be dropping them off for the meeting and then I’ll have to leave to go teach. But it is still going to an “eating out” establishment.
Dunno… this seems like a grey area to me… or perhaps I’m making it a grey area. I’m appreciate your thoughts on this one!
