Why I’m lazy on principle

by Yule Heibel on July 29, 2003

Recently, Halley’s Comment served up Rocky Road, and for what it’s worth, I thought it was the perfect Sunday dish. It started somewhere around here, and then some people apparently gave her a hard time about it, but she did it anyway, and had some interesting reflections about it. Opting out — and getting flak for it — reminded me of an article (in a Munich paper) I read in the late 70s that recounted the hostile reactions a woman got in response to keeping one day a week alcohol-free. Her drinking buddies went nuts. They said she had a problem; they didn’t see that they were the addicts or that they were enabling each other. Puritan America is happy enough to let you be alcohol-free, but it seems that there are always other addictions a-plenty that your co-dependents don’t want you to lose.

Alas, I cannot enjoy the pleasures of the drink except in very very minute amounts — as when I am offered a taste of a delicious liqueur. Still, there is chocolate….

Toblerone, I presume?

Carbolite. I’m diabetic when everyone’s looking.
