I like food more than I care to admit. There are some days when I wish that there was a food pill that could simply take care of all of my nutritional needs for the day in one foul swallow. Unfortunately, that does not and probably will never exist, so I’m stuck with food. The best thing about food is that there is such an abundance of options. The worst thing about it is also just that. I could eat nothing but candy all week, or I could transform myself into Freelee the Banana Girl. Neither of those options would be particularly healthy, but I have the freedom to do either. Every day, I have to decide what I’m going to eat, and I find that mildly irritating. I will literally have to do that every day for the rest of my life, which is a lot more daunting than the fact that I will have to work for the next 40 years.
