Maybe Next Week I will Blog About Metamucil

If you are ever in need of a statement that will make you seem 16 years old and 6o years old at the same time, look no further than this here blog.


Yesterday I was out to lunch with coworkers and the discussion turned to dieting and exercises, something on many people's mind as we begin the slow, jiggling roll into bathing suit season. Some expressed a desire to eat more fruit. Some vowed to make it to the gym more during the week. I opined about one of my favorite features of healthier eating. Specifically getting enough fiber. Specifically I burst out with "FIBER IS THE BOMB!!".

After a brief silence the table commenced with "No you didn't just say "Fiber is the bomb". But of course I did and then, because making a simple statement isn't enough, I expounded on the fact that I wasn't referring to specific, um, plumbing repercussions that arise with a diet high in fiber but merely that when I get enough fiber I feel GREAT! And I love my Fiber One Cereal and my Fiber One bars. And do you know HOW many people don't get their daily allowance of fiber? Hell yeah Fiber is the bomb!

I think it's easy to see that while most of my coworkers are in their 40s and 50s, I am definitely the old lady of the bunch.

When I personally increase my fiber intake it certainly is THE BOMB. Or at least it can be. Heh.

Goodness, yes. I have never felt more married than the day I stood in Target choosing a fiber supplement for my husband. Except we were not yet married at the time!

P.S. Benefiber. It rocks.
