I’ve got a very bad attitude about carby foods that tempt me; I see them akin to an abusive ex.
I nearly died several times from the side effects of diabetes and diabetic medications.
My friend Anna Sul says you may have loved the carbs, but they didn’t love you back, and that’s a good summation.
The first time I heard her say that, I imagined having an abusive ex, who nearly killed me several times, and I finally escaped.
So when the pasta, who knows me intimately, suggests we just have a “quickie” for old times sake, the reply that comes to mind is: yes, it wasn’t all bad, I have some fond memories of our good times, and yes, the sex was incredible, but NO YOU CAN”T COME OVER!
