Krispy Kreme's Spider-Man Doughnut

My salivary glands worked double time when I saw Krispy Kreme's fetching billboard on EDSA. Common sense told me to practice self-control and for once, to think twice before eating something that could potentially make my already aching throat worse.

On my tenth day of abstinence, a colleague—despite knowing my throat's strong aversion to sweets—tempted me with a Spider-Man Doughnut. Who could resist such a pure, selfless offering? I'm not an android. I'm expected to eat things I shouldn't be eating, right?

I've been having pharyngitis for three weeks now and my costly medication (1k+ per week) is ruining my shopping plans. Relapse means another week of antihistamines and antibiotics.

In fairness to myself, I did have a decisive moment before my fall from grace. I thought about my mounting medical expenditures and the number of books I could have bought with that amount. My reverie lasted for about five seconds, after which, I ate Spidey for all his worth.
