Default Laugh all you want

Some of us are on diets.

Some of us eat some things we really shouldn't.

A friend dared me to do something today.

Try it, she said.

You'll like it, she said.

It's cheap, she said.

Quick and easy, she said.

And much better for you, she said.

So I did.

Ready to laugh yourself silly?

It is my pleasure to report to you that I, an old geezer, just ate a Gerber Graduates Lil' Entrees Italian Style Cheese and Herb Pasta Picups with Peas dinner. 7 oz. Cost $1.69. Prep time: 30 seconds.

Delightful, it was.

90 calories.

QUITE filling.

13 carbs, of which 2g were FIBER.

I know it sounds silly. They are good.

Honest.

Anyone else man or woman enough to try them?

Then there are the Gerber Biter biscuits. I call them people biscuits. 45 calories and VERY good, but CRUNCH, CRUNCH, CRUNCH.

Anybody dying laughing about there yet?

Lastly, the Arrowroot cookies are to die for. Also from Gerber.

And to think, I am not even on Social Security yet and already eating baby food!

Yes, I have all my teeth (but one).

Well sounds like it might be good in theory eh?

I much prefer the foods I am eating now. Smoothies, Subway.

I have tried it. It's just been a good many years since I was an infant. I did try an Apple one when I was babysitting once about 2 yrs ago. Wasn't all bad.

See. I'm catching up.

There were no such things as Gerber Graduates whenst I was a child.

In fact, baby food was yucky stuff that came in glass jars and was generally pureed. Yuckadoo.

Strained carrots. Strained peas. Strained anything.

Ick.

Then there were those gross looking vienna sausage looking things in the jars.

Turns out nearly all of it was decidedly unhealthy, in retrospect. It had lots of added sugars and salts, but it DID keep us quiet. Mostly.

It's funny as adults we gag at the thought of eating this stuff, but don't think twice about feeding it to our children

Is this from the best selling diet book, the Gerber Diet? I think I saw that right next to the South Beach Diet book when I was in the store

I believe this week mc donalds will be selling the adult happy meal. A salad, walking meter, bottle of water.

In other countries they believe the picture on the baby food means the bottle contains real baby parts or baby food.

If your social security is anything like my folks, you will be likely buying a 50 pound bag of the cheapest dry dog food and stealing packages of ketchup, salt, pepper, napkins, etc from your local fast food place. Then you will wash platic disposable dishes you eat from, re use paper towels, etc.

Social security for the disabled is a bit more, but not by much. Wonder how those people cheat it and end up rich?

I am certainly not going to laugh. However, being the parent of two small children, I know exactly what you are talking about. They are tasty, as I have finished off what the children didn't when they were younger. Problem for me is, at 6'6" and 235lbs, it would take about a dozen of those to make me feel full. Kind of negates the reason you ate one.
