Yes, it's true. Alas! On Thursday mornings after Tai Chi, Art and I do indulge in something that is not healthy... but it's cheap. What can I say? (Please don't tell Master Pong about us.)
For $1.50 we get a rather large hot dog and a drink at Costco. My other weakness is the soft serve swirl for $1.35. Yes, yes! I know. I know. But I don't get the swirl all the time. Art usually distracts me so that I'll forget to buy it.
Now then, here's something Art taught me that I had no idea about. His family owned and operated a small restaurant/soda fountain on the Big Island so he knows a lot more than I do about food establishments.
Art assumed I knew those little tabs at the self service soda fountain will give you water or soda (carbonated water). I had no idea. Now that was a lot of fun to discover. I am truly trying to limit my sugar intake because I am pre-diabetic. I usually have the diet Coke. I discovered that I can now have a dash of Fanta or raspberry iced tea in some soda water. I could also just have some Sprite with more soda water. Fun! I'll have to experiment with this next week.
Remember... don't tell Master Pong. He did tell us that we must eat healthy. I'm trying. I'm trying. Now that I know about that soda tab, I can be a little healthier...sort of... kind of...
