A woman was lamenting to my wife that she had gained weight. She’d made her
family’s favorite cake over the weekend, she reported, and they’d eaten half
of it at dinner. Since she was dieting, she ate only a tiny slice.
The next day, she said, she kept staring at the other half, until finally
she cut a thin slice for herself. Well, one slice led to another, the
another, and soon the whole cake was gone. The woman went on to tell Teresa
how upset she was with her lack of willpower, and how she knew her husband
would be disappointed.
Of course my wife commiserated, but then asked what her husband said when he
She smiled. “He never found out. I made another cake and ate half.”
