Sugar Baby

Hey all. Sorry that I haven't posted in a few days. It has been a busy week.

I was on the subway two or three days ago and an older white woman began talking to this little black girl who was sitting down with her mother. The woman was one of those hippie-yoga-voodoo-ganja-veggie-types who had the body of a 40 year old, but the face of a crack addict. The girl, on the other hand, was a scrumptious little cutie-pie.

Anyway, for a time I chose to ignore their conversation and listen to my iPod. Fortunately, it died just in time for me to catch the tail end of what must have been a truly enlightening debate.

Old Woman: "You know, you should really limit your complex carbohydrate intake."
Little Girl: "..."
Old Woman: "If you eat more protein, you won't crave so much sugar."
Little Girl: (pause) "What does that mean?"

Can you believe that? The poor girl doesn't even know what a complex carbohydrate is. No wonder the Indians are taking all of our jobs.
