There’s this guy at my office who I’ve seen several times microwaving a bowl containing an entire bag of frozen mixed veggies. I wasn’t sure if he was eating these as meals or what, so today when he happened to nuke his veggies while I was getting my lunch, I asked him what’s with the veggies.

“I have a crazy addiction to potato chips so I eat these instead.”

“I suppose that’s a good substitution.”

“Yeah, that’s what they say you’re supposed to do, but it’s not good for the soul.”

I can only hope that maybe someday, he’ll come to terms with his crushing potato chip addiction, and is able to enjoy the occasional moderate amount of potato chips.
