This has got to be the funniest thing I've seen today!
Also, in the category of "duh, you nitwit" are my mild headaches I've had this week. Years ago, I figured out that most of my migraines and other less severe headaches were food allergies. So today, I am yet again managing to work while one hand is shoved down in the cheetos bag, and it crosses my mind that I've had a mild headache every day this week. Hmmm... and those little headaches are resistant to OTC drugs and usually arrive in the afternoon when.... I have my hand jammed down in a sack of cheetos! Actual name brand cheetos this week (and only this week) as opposed to the Aldi brand. Duh, you nitwit, you're allergic to the buttery, cheesy goodness of name brand Cheetos. But only when you consume 1/3 of a bag per day. Everything in moderation....
And oddly, I had felt justified in gorging on cheetos after a co-worker's visit yesterday. I was just barely over yet another fit of worrying about my husband and his new lap-band, when she stopped by, plopping into my visitor's chair to ask, deeply concerned, how he was doing. Pretty well, the big pain from last weekend has subsided and he's back to symptom free and zero complications. She then proceeds to tell me about a friend of a friend of a friend (you know how that goes) who was mostly healthy, went in for a gastric bypass and died 5 days later. Thanks. I needed that! Anyone ever try to tell you that having a major digestive organ REMOVED is a whole lot different than placing a removable plastic thingy around part of your stomach? And remember my biggest fear in life is to be a young widow, much less a single-mother-young-widow!? I was then wondering if I could just get up and leave my desk in order to avoid her... how rude is that in the face of rudeness? It's like telling a pregnant woman labor horror stories. WHY DO PEOPLE DO THAT!?
She then launched into how important diet was and how nutrasweet was poison, and high fructose corn syrup was just....just.... horrible! Really, and I made my baby some home made pear baby food with some in it just last weekend! And she is so proud that she has completely eliminated sugar from her diet (while eyeballing my 3 empty Dr. Pepper cans on my desk) and she kept going on and on about healthy eating and for the second time in 6 minutes, I was thinking of leaving my cubicle while she's still sitting there talking.
What's a girl to do in that kind of situation?
