Bitten ears and ice cream cones
Whew. We made it through another week.
I had to laugh when I read this article about a Nebraska woman who allegedly beat the poop out of a man after he shouted an insult at her.
The first version of this story I read yesterday said it was an insult about her weight, though that reference has since been removed.
The story says she “allegedly ran half a block, tackled the man and bit off a chunk of his right ear.”
Now, I don’t know how fat you can be and still accomplish running half a block to tackle someone, but I do understand being this angry.
My senior year of college, I got into a fist fight with a dude who just randomly shouted “Fat Ass!” at me at like 3 a.m. outside a Denny’s.
Yes, really. You can’t make this stuff up.
Ah, well. That’s a story for another time. Plus, my mom reads this blog now.
I’ll just leave it at the fact that I haven’t always been the genteel Southern Belle I am now.
So let’s end this week on a positive: ice cream.
Did you know McDonald’s soft-serve vanilla is low-fat? One cone is only 150 calories!
Another good option there is the Fruit and Yogurt Parfait. Without the granola, it’s 130 calories, and with it, it’s 160.
So, I say have the ice cream.
Do it this weekend, and tell ‘em that bruiser Misty sent you.
See you Monday.
