Still here? Don't worry, I've got a million of them...
6. I’m not giving up carbs for anything, no way, no how.
I’d rather keep the extra ten pounds and be happy about it. After all, when global warming causes the entire balance of the earth to shift, drastic climate change forces mass migration, and we’re left to forage for dandelion greens and pate of possum to survive, won’t you wish you had filled up on bread? I know I’ll be pleasantly full of “ I-told-you-so.”
I love starch. I love pasta, potatoes, rice, bread, cookies, cakes, churros, blinis, the spray-on stuff that makes your collar nice and stiff. Mmmmm.
Short of a grain blight, the only way I might be forced to forgo my beloved pancakes is the dreaded celiac sprue. And bless my mother’s heart, if she gave me that gene, I’ll never forgive her. Pass the syrup.
