The other day I went out for lunch with some coworkers as a team-building exercise to California Pizza Kitchen. I ordered a salad and the man sitting across from me (my project manager) said, “A salad? You looked at the calorie counts* didn't you? Don't even look at those, get what you want. You don’t need to diet."
In my mind I was like, "No asshole, I didn't look at the calorie counts. I looked at what was delicious!" But in life I just sort of looked away and mumbled “glutenfreemumblemumble” and then everyone at the table started talking about home theatre systems or something.
And for the record, I looked it up when I got back to my desk and my salad was over 1000 calories, and I ate the whole damn, delicious thing! It is so aggravating that he would just assume I’m on a diet.
*In NY all restaurants with over 15 locations nationwide must print calorie counts on the menu.
No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means.
The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears or the sea.
