People often ask me questions about how I’m managing to age so well, about how I eat and when, and what sort of exercise program I incorporate into my daily life.

Okay, that’s fake news.

That never happens. Which hurts my feelings, because i’d love someone to ask.

Anyway, for those of you who are in fact wondering, last night I ate a jumbo sized box (and a half) of Corn Pops after 10, drank a bottle of wine, and had another 36 of these little Ore Ida pizza bagel thingies, which were surprisingly good.

I baked the first batch in the oven, but after about 3/4 of the wine was gone, I nuked the second half.

They weren’t quite as tasty, but had a much shorter wait time, which felt like a good tradeoff.

After all — who wants to wait 12 minutes for your pizza bagels to crisp up at 2am? I know I don’t.

I woke up this morning with a nose bleed, and I’m wondering if any of that is related.

If anyone has some experience with this, I’d love to hear about it.

(I did spend a few minutes this morning Googling “box of corn pops” + “nose bleeds,” but there were only a few random results from Yahoo answers that predict I’m not long for this world)

I don’t even really blame myself for any of the above.

I blame Florida.

And PUBLIX supermarkets specifically.

Every time you go in there they have some sort of impossible to ignore “buy one get one free” deal that just sucks you in.
If you would have told me, on my way to the store, that I’d be walking out with two boxes of cereal and 48 pizza bagels in a box, (actually 2 boxes) I wouldn’t have believed you.

  1. I went to buy brocoli sprouts.
  2. And 1 avocado.
  3. And one 5 pack of low carb wraps


That would have never happened when I was living in New Jersey.

And yet, here I am, with a blood soaked cotton ball in my left nostril, 14 hours later, wondering what the hell happened to my life.

Thanks for reading.   And no, you can’t have those 2 minutes of your life back.
