I didn’t have any aches or pains and Brian’s doing better (he’s been lifting a lot of heavy stuff at work and he’s also under a lot of work related stress). I’ve already mentioned Ciara’s little visit.
Brian told the doctor that I’ve been really tired, which I have. I just brushed it off to allergies, but the doctor did the testing and said that I have a virus. So, he had me hold different bottles of stuff against my chest to see which would help me out best and it turned out to be this forty-five dollar bottle of powdered greens. He tested me with the bottle and my body needs two scoops. He said don’t mix it with juice that has sugar in it.
Brian left early this morning to help his bro out (our Saturday morning breakfast cafe is on vacation for two weeks, they’ll be back Monday…we ate at Denny’s last Sunday and we’ll be having Mother’s Day breakfast at IHOP tomorrow, as my mom doesn’t want to go very far) and I was on my own. I had my Quaker cereal, then a little later I thought I’d try the powdered greens.
First off, I read the ingredients on the orange juice and it was just orange juice, no additives. So, I got the bottle down and opened it. Two scoops? Lordy, those are gonna be big scoops. The first scoop mostly ended up on the counter, which I’d just cleaned. I hit the edge of the glass with the scoop. It was nasty looking stuff. So, I did another two scoops into the orange juice and stirred it up. Oh, my gawd, it was nasty, nasty, nasty looking. It didn’t taste too terribly awful, but it looked gross. It kinda sorta tasted like grass.
And looking at it, I kept thinking “soylent green is people!”
