The other day I was at the mall and POW out of nowhere a double cheeseburger with mayo flew in my hands. I did not know what to do, so I went to the food court and ordered fries and a 32 ounce sugar filled cola then went on my way.
By the time that I got home from my day of shopping, I was so ready to chill. I grabbed a bag of chips and plopped on the couch, watched a little cable and took a nap. When I woke, I went to the kitchen. To my surprise, my entire kitchen counter was filled with candy, cookies, chips, cakes, pies and lots of butter.
Since there was not much that I could do, I ate, drank and went back to watching cable.
Although my clothes, even my shoes, were getting tighter, I blamed that size XXL was just getting smaller. I chalked it up to cheap Chinese cloth and noted that next time I would try on XXXL just in case all designers were buying from China.
Later, I visited my Mom. We always have homemade chocolate chip cookies and coffee, but she only offered me coffee. I wanted a cookie. I asked her, “Mom, why aren’t you offering me a cookie with my coffee?”
“I’m cutting back on calories to live healthier. My knees have been hurting and I don’t sleep well,“ she said.
Her comment was stupid dumb and I wanted a cookie.
“What do you mean, Mom? We are fat because of government!”
My silly mom did not understand that Americans are fat, very fat, because it’s government’s fault. Government has not monitored businesses enough to stop the obesity (One exception is New York’s Mayor Bloomberg. He actually cares for the citizens of New York! He and his legislators have passed laws to end the 32 ounce soft drink. We need more mayors and government legislators like Bloomberg who really care).
It’s sad that people like my Mom do not understand that it’s government's fault that America is fat. I am hoping soon that government will pass more laws to stop obesity; I have a wedding coming up and do not want to buy a dress from the maternity section.
Thank God we have government. It’s so dumb to think Americans could live without government running our lives.
