Doing my bit to combat obesity
Current mood: amused
Category: Goals, Plans, Hopes
Recently, on one of the few outings I can still manage, my husband and I went to Wild Oats supermarket. After we had shopped, we sat down at one of the tables they had in their “eating” area (which was right smack dab in the middle of frozen foods) to eat lunch.
While we were noshing, a mother and two kids went digging in the ice-cream section. While the mother and 3yr old girl pulled out pints, the little boy, about 4 or 5 dragged out a QUART container of ice-cream and announced proudly to all and sundry “I’m going to eat SO MUCH ice-cream!!” His mother did not protest this.
So, I said to the boy, “Well I used to eat SO MUCH ice-cream, and look what happened to me!” Then I leaned back from our table and pointed to my 7 months pregnant stomach.
The little boy’s eyes bugged out and his jaw dropped. The kid looked completely shocked, stunned and appalled!
Somehow, I don’t think he’ll be eating “so much” of anything for awhile. I’ve probably scarred him for life.
It’s been over a week since then, and I still get a good laugh out of it.
Sometimes, life is just too good to me.
