It's the first day of spring. I was cycling along Gladstone when the temperature had almost reached it's high point for today: -3°C.
For some reason, I started thinking about that annoying series of commercials where an old lady tells people "Can't get your kids out of the house? Stop cooking with cheese!"
I wondered, how many people cook with cheese? The Italians do and they have a reputation for kids staying at home into adulthood. But the Chinese don't cook with cheese, and they've got a reputation for kids staying at home also. And if the kids are such big freeloaders, wouldn't it be smarter to just stop cooking everything?
I hear "stop cooking with cheese" and I think maybe the old lady is right. Isn't cheese high in saturated fat?
I pondered what if they'd done the opposite campaign: something like "don't want your girlfriend to leave? start cooking with cheese!" Someone I know who cooked roughly five meals in the last five years just moved into his own place near his girlfriend's apartment and word is he's cooking meals more than weekly. With cheese, I think.
What's all this got to do with the picture I've got here? Just after thinking all this about the cheese I saw this chesterfield with a snow bank resting on it.
Can't get winter out of your town? Stop giving it sofas to relax in!
