The Second Month

It seems that the older you get, the faster time passes. I don’t recall time being this rapid when I was a child. I suspect this is due to the fact that time is now money and I need a certain number of hours in the day, days in the month, and months in the year in order to satisfy my work demands. It is already February and Zaum is nearly a month old. I have managed to get some work and I can finally announce that my business cards are at the printers but that is about it. My website is still half finished and I am worried about the extreme lack of work for the future. But it will come, I’m sure. Until then I will sit in front of my computer and muse about aspects of life that no one really cares about.

Today’s topic will be: Feeling Lost Without Fruit and Vegetables.

Most people complain about having to some how fit five vege, two fruit into their diet. Some people would scream with delight if they were told they couldn’t eat another piece of broccoli. I, on the other hand, adore the hated food groups and would quite easily live on spinach for the rest of my life (I’d prefer if I could have a sprinkling of cheese with it though…)

So imagine my horror when I discovered I would have to go without fruit, vegetables and grains (aka. deliciousness) for four whole days for health-test related purposes. Instead I can only eat white bread, pasta and chicken. And vegemite. If I were 8 years old again, I’d be in heaven, but over the past few years I have grown a certain addiction to vegetables and I feel like someone has stolen my favourite Barbie. Normally at this time of the day I would sneak off in search of a piece of chocolate but currently all I want is a plum. Or perhaps a Pink Lady apple. Mmmm… At least I’m allowed solid food today though. On Wednesday all I can have is clear liquids which I am dreading more than the needles they’re going to stick into me. Hurry up time and speed up again. Bring Thursday afternoon when everything will return to normal and I can eat a whole bag of spinach leaves.

P.S. You’ll be pleased to hear that avocado I bought on Friday was DELICIOUS and well worth the $3.60.

  1. Been there, done that – the white diet! I don’t remember needles being a part of the procedure, just a very nice couple of little blue pills. Also paid 3.60 for an avocado, only half good. What a joke.
