I'm Eating the Onion!!!

Here's the deal. I often go to Panera, and I usually get half a turkey sandwich on sourdough and a bowl of soup. I usually forget to ask them to take the red onion off of the sandwich, so when I unwrap it at my desk I'm faced with a choice - eat the onion and have bad office breath all afternoon, or toss it and have an office that smells like onions for up to four and a half days.

Usually I chuck it and then take the garbage bag out to the dumpster, but today is different. It's Friday, it's almost 2 pm, and there's no one I need to talk to urgently. In short, I can't lose. If I throw it out I'll have a fresh garbage bag Monday morning, and if I eat, well, so what?

So I'm going to do it. I'm eating the onion. Wish me luck!

Sorry, Jon, but I voted no - you do have to go home tonight, right? And, I'm thinking of the heartburn you might get from it.

Unless, of course, you pop a Pepcid and Lauren's eating onions today, too!

I voted yes...only because I know how much Scott loves onions, and I am sure you feel the same way. I'm not a big onion fan myself, but I love my husband and kiss him anyway after he's eaten an onion. I imagine that Lauren treats you the same way. :)
Enjoy the onion.
