Oh Good.

In CategoryNavel Gazing

Finally someone has come along to tell me how much soda I should drink at the movies. If there’s one thing I’m tired of, it’s making all these decisions. It’s exhausting wondering if what I make for lunch is acceptable. They’ve already solved the salt problem, now Mayor Bloomberg turns his laser focus onto Large Beverages.

If only they could find a way to make us all eat Kale.

I’ll tell you one thing, if they starts messing around with chocolate, I’m moving to Canada.

Oooh! Or opening a sugary, salty, chocolate-y den of iniquity! Like a speakeasy. With those hidden compartments to hide all the good European chocolate and Pringles. “What? no, no Mr. Government Man, we don’t have any sweets here… would you like a lawn-clipping smoothie?”

And then I’ll tear around in one of those mobster-looking cars with the squinty windows. But my tommy-gun will shoot chocolate chips and tiny salt packets.

And I’ll have a good reason to wear a trench coat.

    Oh my gosh…don’t even get me started. Carl and I saw that on the news this morning while getting ready and we were livid!!! Livid, I tell you. The ridiculousness of it all. They are going to try to limit the amount of soda some consume and continue to sell massive amounts of alcohol and cigarettes and humongous, greasy cheeseburgers?? What gives them the right to determine what I can and can not drink or eat??? It’s outrageous.

    When the government pays for our health care, it is obliged to force us to make healthier choices, as defined by the USDA.

    I was with you till the last sentence. Then I thought, “Is she naked under the trench coat?” and forgot about the sodas. :/
