In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Red Pill, Blue Pill.”
If you could get all the nutrition you needed in a day with a pill — no worrying about what to eat, no food preparation — would you do it?
Food has always been sort of a double-edged sword for me. On one hand, I need it in order to survive. On the other hand, I like it so much, it could kill me.
When I was a child, I was rail thin. It wasn’t because I didn’t eat or anything like that. I had a decent appetite. I just had that body frame. You know the kind, very bony like. My knees and elbows were very pronounced and the bones at the side of my wrist and ankles protruded. I’m still like that today. Except, now, I have extra padding around my midsection.
