In any case, it was a nice salad, intended as a slimming lunch. Alas, it was followed a few minutes later by the remains of a child's cold, barely touched grilled cheese sandwich and a frosted cherry Pop-Tart -- the last in a package that was cluttering up the cupboard.
We woke up this morning, stepped on the scale, and resolved to lose 17 pounds. It seemed wise to rid the cupboard of all temptations, like frosted cherry Pop-Tarts. We will sleep easier, and diet more enthusiastically, knowing they are gone.
