Math problem for today

Alice eats two peanut butter chocolate cookies which are 250 calories each. One contains seventeen chocolate chips, the other contains eighteen. How soon will it be before she starts punching nosy relatives who say "Are you sure you should be eating that?"

Bonus question: How many minutes does it take to cram an entire fruitcake into assorted orifices of nosy relatives?

I think that the answer should factor out to be about2.2 seconds!

You know my answer!

Janna said...

Otin: Pretty close!

Brian: I'd hate to have any incriminating evidence out there...

Grace: I almost put another thing at the end like I did last time, where "If your name is Grace, subtract twelve." ;)

I have these same relatives. I don't care what the answer is. I just hope they choke to death on their carrot sticks and die this Christmas.

MikeWJ: You have the same relatives? That must mean we're related! Can I come over? It's ok; I don't mind sleeping on the sofa. You have good stuff in the fridge, right?

I know it's just the chalupas you're after, but I'm so dysfunctional I'll take it as a sign of friendship.

MikeWJ: Excellent! I like chicken chalupas best... with plenty of hot sauce. And cheese. And maybe some diced tomatoes. Mexican rice goes really well with them too. Just sayin'.

Last time my stupid, skinny sister asked that question because I was eating ONE cookie, I answered, "You,re right. Why waste time," as I shoved four in my mouth at once.

Now I'm hungry ... again. Emotional eating ... the friend of the masses asses.

Marla: Ugh! You're right. Skinny relatives just don't get it.
Save me some cookies; we'll commiserate. :)
