I took May off for my annual mental reboot (and Mother's Day, gardening, studio cleanout, visit from parents, son's birthday, doctor appointments....). Among other goals, I stopped drinking soda and started looking around for what else I could fix. At the market, I picked up a box of sugarcubes for my tea and noticed it said they were "fat free".
What difference does that make? Everyone should know by now sugar turns to fat faster than fat does. But we don't, do we?
I felt insulted. I'm having tea now without sugar and I got a comic strip out of it, so I can't complain. So there, sugar company, your weasel words had the opposite effect on at least one person. It's too bad you're killing so many other people with them.
On another note, for some reason I didn't have Loki speaking LOLspk in the first draft of this one! I don't know why that happened, some subliminal thing, maybe. Should I switch to English or keep the babytalk/LOLspk? Let Loki know on Twitter
