There was a girl, about 12, eating breakfast with her dad in the hotel dining area. Just the two of them. Enjoying their time together. And then he got up to get to go breakfast orders for the rest of the family and they left. It was like watching a memory. I wanted to tell her to hang on to those little moments. Someday they’ll be the best memories she’ll have.

If you thought Beth and I were going to spend our vacation running around trying to do everything there is to do, you don’t know us very well. We’re on vacation. I’m kind of exhausted from vacation, but I’m not dying. Yet. It’s been fun. I love it. But we’re both a little burned out from all the people. Our last day will be for relaxing and it will be awesome. :-)
One out of 5 prescriptions for antibiotics is written to treat sinusitis. Sinusitis, when caused by a virus, does not respond to antibiotics, and research shows when it is caused by a bacteria, antibiotics don’t treat it any quicker than a placebo.
This means that *at least* 20% of antibiotics prescribed are completely medically unnecessary. If you want to know why we have so many drug-resistant bacteria, this is why.
Stop demanding unnecessary medications from your doctor. You are what’s wrong with America.
“I apologize to you if I don’t seem real eager to jump into a forced awkward intimate situation that people like to call dating. I don’t like the feeling. You’re sitting there, you’re wondering do I have food on my face, am I eating, am I talking too much, are they talking enough, am I interested I’m not really interested, should I play like I’m interested but I’m not that interested but I think she might be interested but do I want to be interested but now she’s not interested? So all of the sudden I’m getting, I’m starting to get interested… And when am I supposed to kiss her? Do I have to wait for the door cause then it’s awkward, it’s like well goodnight. Do you do like that ass-out hug? Where you like, you hug each other like this and your ass sticks out cause you’re trying not to get too close or do you just go right in and kiss them on the lips or don’t kiss them at all? It’s very difficult trying to read the situation.”—Wedding Crashers
I love how this demonizes the Shamrock Shake for its ingredients, and then tells you to use low fat ice cream and skim milk to make a shake instead. Fat gives ice cream its wonderful, creamy texture. In order to keep its palatability when you start lowering the fat content, you’ve got to throw in additives (glycerol monostearate, guar gum, locust bean gum, xanthan gum, carageenan, methylcellulose, sodium citrate… I can go on).
And skim milk is just gross.
If you’re really concerned about the ingredients in a Shamrock Shake, don’t buy the shake. But don’t think using chemically altered foods as an alternative because they’re lower in fat is any better for you. If you want to eliminate fat from your diet, go ahead and eat the Shamrock Shake. It’s about as real of a food as anything else you’re going to buy off a shelf.
