Too Many Calories

First, a discloser: I hold nothing against obese people. Actually, I feel bad for them. That said, I hope you are not offended by this blog entry.

This afternoon I was standing in line at McDonalds and overheard a costumer placing her order. This woman was huge! So huge her picture should appear next to the word "obese" in the dictionary. I'm talking 300 pounds plus!

She should have ordered a salad without dressing, but no. Instead she ordered a Big Mac, a cheese burger, large fries, a chocolate sundae, and to wash it down..., a large diet coke. A "diet" coke! As if that was going to help her lose weight.

I may think of this woman whenever I see a diet beverage for a long, long time to come...

  1. Kind of a 'microblog' response... from when my daughter was about two and a half.

    Ever vigilant to be 'on a diet' to lose even those perceived extra pounds, my wife had bought the "Weight Watchers" brand fudgecicles. My daughter eagerly reached for one from the freezer as my wife was preparing dinner, but was cautioned,

    "No dear, those aren't for you. Those are what Mommy eats to lose weight."

    The tiny child's demeanor drastically changed, as she carefully contemplated returning the frozen treat, with the reply

    "How much weight will I lose?"
