Streaking to 51
I met an acquaintance today in the supermarket. We chatted for a bit and then moved away from one another still talking a little.
Then she shouted down the aisle, "Silverbirch! Have you lost weight?"
And I did not say, "Yes! Nine pounds through determined effort since the beginning of January. I am on an incredible no butter or peanut butter streak. Don't you think I am fantastic?"
I said, "Ooh. Do you think so?"
So then she said, "Oh yes, you have, you know. [Looking me up and down] Yes, you have."
I said, "Oh. Hmm. Well yes. See you then."
Friends, this is perfectly excellent. I'm keeping this up. Thanks for being here.
