I've always been a little overweight, and I've tried dozens of different diets; you name it, I've tried it.
Nothing ever worked, as I have almost no self-control.
In an intense fit of self-loathing, I decided to make myself learn self-control.
I installed a spring system that triggers during certain times of the day, forcing the refrigerator door shut. I got some nice finger bruises, but not enough to stop me.
Then, I put razor-thin strips of metal along the inside of the door itself.
I now have eight remaining reasons to try to avoid snacking.

    I really like how you use a casual tone to make the unsettling truth of what happened in the drabble all the more effective. Nice job!
