Healthy Fries?Posted: October 3, 2006
Ok, nutritional question for you.
I had a great lunch today. I ate at a local spa/resort type place. Really great chicken wrap. And, on the side — ‘herb crusted fries’.
My thought is this, if I’m at a spa, they’ve got to be healthy fries, right? I mean, isn’t that why they were described as ‘herb crusted’?
A spa wouldn’t serve fries that are bad for you. Would they?
Wait. Maybe they would. Maybe it’s a ploy by the spa spies to get me to go there and actually work off the herb-crusted fries.
Bottom line — never trust the spa spies.
And, another thing. So, this lunch was a working lunch. It was a meeting of four people.
And, because of that, I was over-dressed. Significantly over dressed.
What was I wearing? Well, just my usual — khakis and a plaid shirt.
But, here’s the thing. Of the other 50 or so people in the restaurant, I’d say 45 of them were in spa clothes — read, bathrobes.
Yup, eating in their bathrobes. Not for breakfast, mind you, when I think eating in your bathrobe (if you wear one) is completely acceptable.
This was at lunch.
And, OK, I can admit. While I was debating between the aforementioned herb-crusted fries and a side salad, I was also wondering if the people wearing the bathrobes were going commando.
Tell me you wouldn’t do the same thing. I don’t believe you.
