    ...they are now adding fruit. Yay. So, I might snag a banana, but I'm not usually even tempted.

    Oh, and donuts. I've looked, but not touched.

    Our has a fruit salad, too, but I'd just rather eat what I've got.

    Luckily, our admin started buying snacks just for my department - bananas, pistachios, almonds, san pelligrino mineral water, clementines... but also hostess cupcakes and cheetos... so, at least I have some good snack options if I forget mine at home.

    YKYPW you realize that a small grocer only 1.1 miles away carries the butter and half and half you like, and you're happy for a number of reasons:

    -it's walking distance (walk + sun = good)
    -it's another step toward diminishing dependency on Whole Foods Market
    -the 2.2 mile round trip means you only have to walk three miles tomorrow morning

    Oh, and on the way home, it starts pouring rain, and while everyone else is running for cover, you think, "this is so good for my hair and skin."

    when you see someone at the grocery store with nothing but fresh fruit in their cart and your first thought is that it is unhealthy.

    I saw an electrocuted bird dead on the roadside near the bus stop, and considered taking it home to eat.
    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

    Maybe said before, but...

    YKYPW, you get finished eating and feel like you could run a marathon.

    When I got done eating on SAD, I felt like I could sleep for hours. Now, I get done eating and want to pull a Forrest Gump and keep on running.

    YKYPW...

    You eat your shrimp-fried-in-Kerrygold-butter directly from the fry pan and then lick the fry pan clean.

    While your two Golden Retrievers watch, drooling.

    And you don't feel guilty.

    (But the Goldens get fed primally, too!)

    YKYPW,

    Your wife threatens "I'm outta here if you start putting butter on your bacon!" I hadn't considered it until she brought it up, sounds kinda good.

    YKYPW,

    After listening to coworker talk about your arms and calves. You think it would be easier to lie to your coworkers about your recent muscle development and just say, "These new steroids are great", rather than have them lecture you about how you are ruining your health by not eating grains.
