In case you've been wondering where I've been, let's just say that food and I have been spending a little time apart. It was me, not food. I was being too needy, apparently. Always wanting the food, always trying to find a way to eat the food. Food said back off! I need some space, woman! Just a cracker, I said? No!!! No crackers! Soup? Soup is food! See that piece of rice floating around in there? That's food! Drink some water. (Whoa. Says who? I don't have any openings in my watery schedule for the next three days. She can have air.)
By now, everyone knows my Achilles heel. Go for the gut, they whisper to each other. Yes, even the little fragments of RNA that don't have mouthparts. But I am recovering and will be back on schedule soon enough.
