Herself: I got him a movie and a really funny card. Noted in the paper today, the cruise lines have stopped going in to Mazatlan because of recent violence there. I’m glad we got to see it. Yesterday here, I got all the donated books out on the shelves except the higher priced ones. Found one Algebra text at $179.00 at ABE books. I confused the volunteer that was pricing books too….and I humbly apologized. Groveled. I’m coughing less at last.
Not us here either. Usually we eat vegetarian. Occasionally Vegan. From my heft, you can tell there’s no aversion to the higher fat items on the menu such as cheese enchiladas. Last week I made them with no fat tortillas….the ultimate in food oxymoron’s.
Tonight I was thinking of serving BLT’s. We like BLT’s….but with Turkey bacon and extra mayo. There’s even some pretty good soy bacon to be found at Henry’s. Soup and sandwiches. Baked potato with soy butters and soy sour cream or even just with gringo salsa. Are those oxymoronic too? Baked squash with soy butter and a dash of nutmeg. Roast asparagus with a little fresh ground pepper and olive oil.
Note, the common theme is fat here….and that’s what we resemble.
Perhaps we need to go back to the future and take a leaf from Bee. She was 200 pounds, and now she looks just like she did at 18. Except for the laugh wrinkles. No matter what I do, I will never look like I am 18. Sun damage and smoking damage have ruined my skin and my laugh wrinkles. It will be just my luck that my 39 year old husband will turn wrinkleless as he loses weight, and he loses weight fast.
By Monday, I might be coughing less enough to get back into the pool too. Maybe my body will absorb the water and hide the wrinkles. Then again, perhaps that’s just daydreaming oxymoronically. I like that kind of thinking.
