Oh My Aching Back!

I went to the market and bought fifty pounds of bananas to satisfy the voice on those subliminal tapes and help me lose weight.

Only problem… I threw my back out in the process and am now typing this post sitting with my back set up against a large bag of frozen peas wrapped in a hand towel. I am a cripple and can only just barely reach the chocolate on the desk.

Help!!! The subliminal tape is running…. if I can’t reach to turn it off, do you think I’ll melt away right here, just like the frozen peas…. ?

I think I’ll take some drugs. 🙂 Better than peas to calm the spastic muscles… and I was going to go exercise at the gym today too. Darn!

FIFTY pounds of bananas??? They’ll go bad before you can eat them all! Stick to chocolate!

Dearest C K… you are, of course, quite correct. I dropped the bananas when my back went out… they fell out of the car and into the waiting jaws of the neighborhood dog pack… surprising how these small little terriers go for them.

In the meantime, I am sipping tea and eating chocolate cookies to regain my strength. 🙂

Well, if you can’t move, that will limit your access to food. This could be the most successful weight loss practice to date!
