800. Following Newspaper Recommendations

Being the Virgo that I am, I had diligently mapped out activities for my kids this summer. 


I was going to take them to the pool, enroll them in art camp, ride bikes with them, go to museums.  


All kinds of fun things. 


But, as much as I love my kids, I had carelessly neglected to make any summer plans for the one who matters most in my life, the one I could not do without, the one I spend so many of my waking hours dreaming about. 


That’s right:  Food. 


Never fear. 


In my local newspaper a few days ago, the journalist helpfully devoted an entire article to just what I needed:  “Summer plans for the kids and food.” 





YES!  This was the exact article I had been waiting for!  I could finally get some good ideas about making summer plans for my food! 

I read the article in its entirety, and then I immediately began fantasizing about where I could escort my food.

Of course, I instantly thought of the beach.  I could take my Food for a nice run there. 
Food would probably want to go to an amusement park.  That would be a good use of our time. 

Since the kids were in art camp, Food might be interested in that, too. 
I considered taking Food to the pool, but then remembered Food had been banned there.  This smacked of foodism.  I vowed to check Food’s legal rights later.   


Food would love to fly, and I made a mental note to help Food apply for a passport. 


I was so excited to tell The Husband all about the new plans I had come up with for Food based on the wonderful newspaper article.  Then I realized the perfect summer activity for Food, the activity my family and I treasure most:

  6. Food and I have a love/hate relationship. Food makes me balloon into hippopotamic proportions but I still enjoy having it around. I think I'll just try to make it go home sooner.

  10. The only thing that appeals to me in the summer is ice cream. My freezer is packed with it. Lovely days ahead of me. Too bad I can't take it anywhere. Then it just becomes sugar soup.

When you write a comment, it makes me feel like I won the lottery or at the very least like I ate an ice-cream sundae. (This has nothing to do with the fact that I did just eat an ice-cream sundae.)
