I love Fridays. And no, not TGI Fridays. Okay, TGI Fridays isn’t awful, I thought it would be more like Chotchkie’s in Office Space and was disappointed when the waiters didn’t wear flair.
Back on point! I look forward to Fridays because I walk into my office and yell out, “It’s Treat Friday!” and I hear some of my coworkers mumble back “it’s Treat Friday!”
Before I sat near them, they had no idea what it is and now Fridays take on a whole new meaning in my part of the office.
Actually, that might be a crock, but I like to think it isn’t.
Treat Friday is simple: On Fridays, you eat WHATEVER you want. Calories, carbs, fat grams, sodium, alcohol content (to some extent) don’t matter. AT ALL.
Treat Friday is all about treating yourself.
Why? Well…why not? Don’t we all deserve a treat at the end of the week?
I bring my lunch to work four days a week and now that I can’t eat chocolate candy because of Lent, I am in NEED of a pick-me-up on Friday and Treat Friday is just that.
On Treat Friday, it’s whatever you want whenever. So when Treat Friday rolls around, my cubemates and I discuss what we’ll be having for lunch that day as our indulgence.
It’s pretty great. Tomorrow is another Treat Friday and I cannot wait.
I’m trying to decide already how I will reward myself for another week of work :) Plus, I’m taking the day off so it’s like a DOUBLE treat.
What’s your idea of a perfect Treat Friday?

Let me know if you agree or think I’m off my rocker.
