Last week, Rob told me his section was having a treat day. They do this often. Too often actually. I think the only reason they come to work is so that they can eat*. but I digress... So, no big deal. I usually bring breakfast. If I don't, the only thing available for breakfast is donuts, which gets old after a while. Last time I brought biscuits and gravy. It was yummy. There are only about 20 people in his section, so it wasn't that big of a deal to make a bigger batch. They were asking me to do it again. So I said yes.
The treat day became a division-wide affair. Someone is being deployed, so we're throwing a party for him. Rob's unit has breakfast, another has snacks, another has lunch, etc. We went from 20 people to 120. And I agreed to still make b+g. So I'm now committed to make roughly 16 quarts - enough to fill my roaster. Why? I don't know. Other people are giving us money, so it's probably not going to cost us anything, but still. What was I thinking?
*Yes, I alwasy eat with them too. (Hello, Pot! My name is Kettle.)
