I went to see Lord of the Rings..Return of the King (two thumbs up), last night with a lady friend from work. Every time I go out, I find it very hard to find something to eat that’s not going to “kill me” the next morning. The only place to eat was a Subway Sub where everything comes on wheat-based bread. I’m always ordering a tuna salad minus the bread when I go there. I would have loved a foot long steak sandwich with mozzarella cheese and all the works but they don’t serve it without the bread…. Well I gave in and I had one with Oat bread ( it probably had 10% oats in it and 90% wheat) and thoroughly enjoyed it…After finishing my “hero” we purchased our tickets and settled ourselves in for gory fight scenes, big footed midgets, beautiful elves, and ugly Orgs. Midway through the movie…it’s 3 hours long…the “hero” I ate started to do me in slowly…my stomach felt like my innards were being twisted with the sword of one of the ugly Orgs on the screen… Needless to say I was very uncomfortable for the balance of the movie and tried my best not to show it to my movie buddy. You can say that my journey with the BTD is like Frodo’s journey of delivering the “ring” into the fires of Mordo…. once you’re on that journey you can’t turn back…………….you have to leave the wheat behind!!
It was blueberries and bananas for breakfast this morning and my “O” stomach thanked me.
