....but I just bought my very first infommercial purchase!!!!!
I'm sorry, but this, I just couldn't pass up. The medically-oriented geek in me couldn't resist! And ever since the boyfriend got his first cavity this year, he's bummed and wants to take better care of his teeth so I decided to get one for him, too. (Happy Valentine's Day, bloke). I got my first cavity at age 25, too, so I feel his pain.
I got three devices total as the TV deal goes. I was thinking about whom I should give the third.....well, then I remembered this dude I dated a while back...he had the worst breath I've ever smelled! I think he needed to floss his teeth. I mean, something was growing in there! Needless to say, after two dates, I had enough. When we met, I didn't notice it because there was counter space. But then when he came to pick me up for the date, that's when I knew I was in for a bad (breath) night.
So I was thinking that maybe I could anonymously send this device to this guy. Man, that would be so mean, but really not, because it would be doing him a favor. He was INFAMOUS for it at his work place! A fellow friend of mine knew him from this place of business. When I told him I couldn't go on anymore dates with him because of his breath, this friend said, "I know, isn't it horrible?" I said, "wait, you knew about it and didn't warn me???!!!" And he said, "hey, you're a smart girl, I knew you'd figure it out on your own. I'm not gonna trash the guy before he even has a chance cause I have to give him props; he had balls and initiative to ask you out!"
Therein lies the perpetual question: how do you tell someone with chronically bad breath that they have chronically bad breath? I'm not just talking about the garlic or onion breath, or the alcohol breath, these things are temporary. But what do you do about that co-worker or friend or family member?
Well, back to the diet (the MAIN purpose of the blog)....OK, I had spanikopita today. This made me wonder whether there is a phyllo dough out there not made with wheat....anyone? Anyone? Really, this has been running through my mind quite a bit lately. How does any sane person avoid phyllo-based pastries and dishes? It's like denying yourself the kingdom of heaven! There has to be a blood-type friendly solution!
Today, I also tried a brand of chocolates that I would not recommend to anyone. But I'm not going to trash this company over the internet, especially since they are local. No, I only trash bad dates and bad movies. So far.
Gee, I seem like such a nice person, don't I? Will you be my friend?
OK, it's getting late and I'm getting loopy. Don't worry, I have the day off tomorrow so I won't be killing anyone on the job in the name of my sleep deprivation.
