Last night I went out with the girls and drank way too much. Despite my best laid plans to eat healthy before I went out and use moderation I ended up at home drunk eating an entire tub frosting with a spoon (70 calories a spoonful-ugh!) I think I am just going to have to start throwing away extra frosting when I'm done baking. I can't have the blasted stuff in the house!
Tonight, though, another solution popped into my head (and if you happen to be an out of work electrical engineer you can have my intellectual property if you promise to make me a few for free).
Fancy cell phones and e-mail now have a "drunk lock" feature that you can turn on when you're going out drinking. In order to call someone or send a message you have to answer really hard math questions to prove that you're sober enough to! I want this for my refrigerator! I'm thinking a very powerful magnet that holds the door closed from the side would do the trick, and then it would just have to be rigged with a little screen that would force you to answer some hard questions before you can take the magnet off and open the door. Maybe it could even be linked to your phone or computer so it doesn't need a little screen.
If I can't domath problems I CERTAINLY don't need to be able to access the ice cream or cream cheese, and I bet there are other people out there who would agree with me!
