"How's that diet of yours going?" she asked tonight.
"No problems. I feel great."
"What did you eat today?"
"I just finished a peach and banana smoothie." So it was full of greens. Why put her off?
"And what are you doing for protein?"
|Bessie and me, noshin' on protein.|
(Big hugs to my niece,
graphic illustrator Rebekah Davis,
for the drawing.)
"Where do you think cows get protein?"
"Well not from grass!"
"I don't know. I never thought about it."
"Fruits and veggies have plenty of protein. That's why cows and horses don't keel over and die."
"Well don't call me when you pass out."
"Okay, I won't."
