Just not me.
Hello! Today was pretty busy – I’m trying to pack 5 days worth of work into 3 and it’s not easy. Don’t get me wrong – I’m excited to have a day off ( to focus on running and eating!) it’s just been more stressful than usual
Just the Tip Tuesday – Don’t eat rice because it has arsenic. And we’re all going to die.
I actually heard a story on NPR a few weeks ago about this but wasn’t worried about it. I figure it is just a matter of time before they find cyanide in oats and bleach in water. They ended the story with – MAKE SURE TO VARY YOUR DIET and I appreciated that.
We live in a society where the news often tells us your next meal will either Kill You or Cure You.
Eat Rice? Well, you are eating poison. You are feeding your partner and spouse poison! How could you?!
So, everyone eats quinoa instead. Then, it’ll turn out quinoa gives you toenail cancer…
Make sure you eat a healthy, balanced diet and change it up. (Hello, if it was discovered that watermelon had arsenic I’d be dead. Busted.)
Soooooo, I did have arsenic brown rice tonight with dinner. Oddly enough the last two times we’ve make this quick cook rice from TJ’s I swear it tastes weird though?! <- in my head??
I heard on twitter that today is National Hug a Runner day!
But, have I ever told you I don’t like hugs?
Okay, it’s not that I don’t like hugs – I do like real hugs. I just don’t like those awkward hugs between casual acquaintances. You know the ones where you just bump chests and lightly pat each other on the back – what is that? I’m not a fan of what I call the fake hug, gimme a high five over a “patty patty hug” any day!
Unfortunately, I’ve told people I don’t like hugs without explaining all of this and been accused of having a tiny black heart. I resent that! My heart is tiny and red thank you.
Question: What do you think will be the next food to kill us?
Do you like hugs?
I wouldn’t mind death by ice cream. What a way to go!
I’m not a fan of fake hugs, so if you’re going to hug me expect a BIG SQUEEZE! I actually try to squeeze Ben’s guts out every time we hug. Not sure if he likes it or not though…
