Sweets

 

Celebration! I have seen so many obese people. There is an index – BMI. It takes your height and weight into account. Any number over 30 is obese by definition. Most of my patients are well over 30. A few have approached 60. The loose clothing and the abaya will hide a whole lot of sin. Candy, ice cream, chocolate, and baked sweets are everywhere and in great abundance. Large trays are passed around. There’s no portion control.

Once again the flavors tend toward the bland. Melon and mango are quite mild. I’d like something with a bit more punch. But no dice. Gaudy! Yes!

It’s sweet and rich. They don’t tell me but I can taste a lot of butter. And anything that tastes good is usually bad for you. Sometimes you just don’t want to know for sure.
