I’m still in my jammies. I ate breakfast, which was an unsuccessful experiment with the slow cooker. Theoretically, it was going to be a creamy cornmeal cereal. In actuality, it was like really bad cornbread. If I were the kind of person who kept a gratitude journal, I’d write maple syrup in there. It was a learning experience.
While I was eating, I finished up Chew on This, which is Fast Food Nation for kids, by the same guy, plus one more. I realized that I really like it when a book comes out and says, “Congress should…, but they probably won’t.” It’s not like books for grownups are less clear about their positions, but they often wrap those positions in a lot more language. I also like it that the book says that even if Congress doesn’t do anything, all the readers can make changes.
I ate my whole grain breakfast while drinking water. And every day I still wish for a soda I’m not going to drink. But I can make changes, too.
