Just a little Snack

So I woke up this morning to get ready to head back home.  Well this is where I must confess that I ate a huge piece of bread pudding with a special syrup w/ pecans and BlueBelle Icecream on top.  I'm talking like...right now, I want to eat all of it but it is about the size of a 1/2 acre.  I know that if I do eat all of it, it will cause some havoc in my stomach right in the middle of a flight.  And THAT is the worst feeling.  So I think I am going to throw it away, whew....done.

I also saw a story yesterday about people, like you and me, who eat out the garbage.  They are called Freegans.  They go to grocery stores and dig in their trash for food.  Now they can afford to buy food but they don't want to cause waste and are upset at the people who do.  It was interesting story.  One guy has lived out of the trash for 10 years!  They go and dig it out, take it home, clean it, and then cook it for a meal.  Amazing.

A lot of the food that grocery stores throw away are still good. They refuse to give it to shelters and such b/c the expiration date is past due...and don't want to be sued if someone gets sick.

What a waste.
