No, I do not want a cookie. Please, stop asking.

Y'all, for the most part, I truly enjoy the people with whom I work. And then, there are days like today, which makes me wish I could have Harry Potter's invisibility cloak so I could just work and be left alone. A coworker brought in cookies. She wanted everyone to try the cookies. She kept coming by to ask if I'd tried a cookie. When we found ourselves in the break room together, she brought me a cookie. I don't WANT the cookie, but I certainly don't want to hurt her feelings, and I'm not the sort of person who wants to talk about "I'm trying to lose weight..." all the time. So, I took the cookie, and put it by my desk. She came over a couple hours later to ask if I'd eaten the cookie, and she was shocked that I hadn't eaten it. "Why won't you just try it!?" "It's not personal, I promise! I'm just not hungry for a cookie right now." "Please, please, PLEASE just try it!" So I did. For world peace. I tried the damn cookie. And I'm still pretty baffled as to why she didn't just let it go.
