You've Got to Be Nuts!

What is it about this picture that makes me want to post it, you ask? It might have something to do with the fact that I've always believed that only old people like nuts. (Yes, Mom, that is one of my over-generalizations that you like to point out.)

Whenever I saw something with nuts, I just automatically was turned off to it. I often thought it would be nice if I had the same excuse that my sister has (a nut allergy), but without the complications.

However, in the last few months, I find myself eating things with nuts. Perhaps it's the fear of starvation (which has previously been discussed and which I now think may really be attributed to the next possible reason). Perhaps it's the fear of spending money, even on food (which automatically forces me to eat whatever people give me). Maybe it's just the simple belief that when you're in a different country you ought to try new things.

These almond things were actually pretty good. In fact, I ate them all in one sitting. For dinner.


  1. Wow, what a nutritious and colorful dinner. I have another possibility to add to why you ate the nutty treats: you're getting old.
