Ever notice that when you are on a diet, all the commercials are about food? I'm sitting here writing this and they are showing a Pizza Hut commercial and guess what, I'm drooling. I mean, I don't even like Pizza Hut. Their pizza tastes like cardboard with a real bad sauce. Now, if you want a real good pizza, you need to try Chicago Connection. They are a local outfit, but their pizza is out of this world. I get salami, pepperoni, mushrooms, garlic (they sprinkle fresh minced garlic over the entire pizza), and extra cheese. This thing comes uncut and piping hot. After you slice the pizza and place a slice on your plate, your plate is just covered in grease (just the way I like it), which could explain one reason I am on this diet in the first place.
If that is not enough, I try and escape to the relative safety of the Internet and visit my favorite sites. While dropping, I am again accosted with lip-smacking recipes and hi-resolution photographs of food. Now, you know who you are, because I commented on your sites and let you know that you are torturing this poor soul. I need to ask myself, is there anyplace that is safe from the influx of these tantalizing and outright cruel commercials?
Another thing that is perplexing, is why in the world I am even writing about this? All I am doing is torturing myself. This is even worse than watching those commercials or drooling over my wonderful, stretchy-cheese-laden, garlic-sprinkled, Chicago Connection Pizza (notice that I even capitalize the word PIZZA).
Now that I'm hungry, I should go into the kitchen and have a nice, crunchy celery stick; only I like to put peanut Butter on them, which kind of defeats the entire purpose of the celery stick. Okay, how about a nice bowl of steamed vegetables? Again, I like to top them with my patented garlic butter (minced garlic mixed in butter).Again, purpose defeated. Oh well, I guess I'll just turn the television and computer off and stare at the cat, who is staring at me...who will win??
