Tim Tams are delicious! (Raise your hands if you agree with me!)
I firmly believe that whoever invented Tim Tams ought to be knighted or proclaimed a saint or something (in fact, back home, it doesn’t take a lot to be ‘Datuk’ – the Malaysian version of a knight; I’d rather not elaborate).
I LOVE TIM TAMS! They are sinfully titillating to the taste buds with its rich creamy chocolate coating and crispy wafer within.
There is just one small problem.
Chocolate gives me a mega-migraine.
When my family left after a short visit a couple of weeks ago, they left behind a few bars of Tim Tams.
It was a choice between indulging in a little chocolate (and suffer the painful consequences) or give the goodies away. It was a tough decision but in the end I chose the latter.
And so, a few days ago, I brought the Tim Tams with me to work and offered them to my colleagues. This was what happened:
Me: Hey! (to 2 of my colleagues), do you guys eat Tim Tams?
Female colleague: Huh? (eyes wide to the point of popping out of their sockets)
Male colleague: Huh? Whoever offers Tim Tams? I mean, no one EVER give up their Tim Tams!
Female colleague: Every one eats Tim Tams! I luuuuurrrve Tim Tams!
Me: Great! Take these Tim Tams! I can’t eat them because I get migraine headache with them.
Awkward silence, as they each took a bar of Tim Tams.
Female colleague: Sure you didn’t lace these with something? *laughs*
Me: Nah…they are perfectly safe. Trust me.
Both colleagues: Ta!
Sigh… I miss out so much in life.
