Five servings a day

It’s been one week since my last float. Just bought some carrot “bread” from the vending machine. 450 calories, 22 grams of fat. But 2 grams of fiber and 25 percent of Vitamin A and 10 percent of my daily intake of iron. And hey, since I can’t eat raw carrots anymore…


A man is being chased by a tiger. He jumps off a cliff and grabs hold of a vine.

Looking down at the ravine below, he sees a second hungry tiger.

Looking up, he sees mice nibbling on the vine.

With nowhere left to escape and facing certain death, he notices some jasmine growing nearby.

He inhales deeply and thinks to himself, “How sweet.”
