I saw one of those tear away ads in our loo yesterday. Weigh-less changed my life blah blah call me! And I’ve generally resigned myself to the fact that as far as my lard-arse is concerned, it’s until death us do part. But I do have my moments of weakness like yesterday where I dream of being slimmer and and and. So I tear off her number, program it into my phone and call her. We have a nice little chat and because I know that the Sauv Blanc I love so much is mostly to blame for my built-in polly-otter, I ask her what the deal is re wine. Well, she goes: We don’t allow any wine for the first (something) I’m sure I heard year, because as soon as I heard don’t allow wine I started hyperventilating. She said something to the effect of we allow wine in the 5th year and only TJ Light. Now to all the wino’s out there…. You know what TJ light is like – it’s basically water with a wiff of wine – one vat of water to a yoghurt cup of wine! I stopped her in her tracks right there and said: Sorry doll, weigh-less isn’t for me then. No wine?! No wine?! I want to be thin and happy… not thin and mental. She laughed nervously and said maybe I’m not ready for the big decision a weigh-less lifestyle involved and I said – a truer word has never been spoken! So for now I remain fat and happy (mostly).
Right on to the pet peeve! Why do till packers ALWAYS squash your yoghurt, bread, fruit and all other soft stuff into a another food group??!! I usually try to remind them and watch them but it’s difficult to keep Thomas away from all the temptations at the till, keep and eye on the total(to make sure my card will honour the purchase) and do a quick check to see if I bought everything I came for. Packing is ALL they have to do. Why can they not use their noggins and put the heavy stuff at the bottom and the light stuff on top. I cannot tell you how many trays of yoghurt I’ve had to discard because it was squashed into kingdom come! Is it really too much to expect these people to use their noggins and pack things logically? Honestly!
