My one fatty indulgence is that I like real cream in my coffee. Not milk. Not half-n-half. Not powdered chemical creamer. And certainly not the soy crap that the company supplies.

Needles to say, I'd put a pint in the fridge and it'd be gone within hours. Putting my name on it didn't help. Putting "do not touch" on it didn't help.

So I got one of these:



End of problem. Better living through psychology:
