Bitten ears and ice cream cones

Editor’s note: Violence is not condoned. Usually.

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.
