And we wonder why

The migraine had reached the level where it was getting harder to ignore, so taking more meds one rang work and called in sick. Then as the migraine slid to the point of being ignorable one did the time honoured thing and went and did something more interesting. Yes that's right, one small slave played hooky and went to the city. Sighs let us hope that doesn't come back to bite one on the arse...

It was a strange sensation pottering around the city alone. In fact one can't remember the last time one was there without Him. There was the odd moment of panic when looking around for Him he was nowhere to be found. But His voice was ever present... in fact his parting shot was remember what would Master like. Sighs there was more than one moment when the hand reached out to touch something only to hear that voice in the head K

Anyway it was the end of the mid-season sales and being, once again, in need of clothes one pottered around replacing a few essentials. The gym gear that is falling off, a pair of jeggings (oh there goes Word lighting up), a denim skirt that actually covers the arse and a lovely purple dress. Not a word about the colour from the peanut gallery...

One of the strange things about a migraine is it makes the sense of smell go into overdrive. As one was pottering around the department store all one could smell was KFC. The place was four floors down... and yet the nose could smell it as well as any hounds. So off one scampered for a little illicit fried chicken. Only to be confronted with one of those upsized meals... for less money than two pieces one could have three.

Upsizing is something that very few companies do here... other than Coke of course. And it is the devils invention... to give you more for less. It gets you used to the idea that you can consume more until it becomes normal.
And we wonder why we have become an obese nation L

More for less! You just need two people to eat one meal, right?

Or a doggie bag.

We've also been brain washed into thinking we need filler food, like chips or fries. In reality, the sandwich we have will be plenty filling without the "side."
