The other night I was playing bridge with the girls when they began to ask questions about my new diet, primarily where I was getting my protein. I was like, “protein smosheen – it’s in vegetables” but they wanted specifics because PROTEIN IS ESSENTIAL TO YOUR BRAIN, you can’t think without PROTEIN, blah, blah, blah. I gave it the same serious consideration that I give everything, which is to say none. As I was leaving, I was thinking about a website I’d seen that listed the protein content of vegetables. I had every intention of looking it up when I got home, but then something odd happened. I got lost. Totally, and completely LOST. I have been there 23 times, but for some reason I took a left when I should have taken a right. The next thing you know I’m driving roads I’d never seen before. Kittens, I was deathly afraid I was going to have to pull into a parking lot and call JD to come get me. Eventually I remembered my phone had GPS, so I plugged in my home address. I kept thinking, “Oh, up here I turn right”, and the GPS would say, “In 4 miles, turn left.” I’m not sure where I was, but thirty minutes later, I got home. Whew.
The moral of the story, obviously, is that you can keep your protein, Brainiacs, GPS rocks!
