Spreading the health
Staff - Signal Staff Writer

Take Me To Post Comment Form


I have made my mark at The Signal and I'm feeling pretty good about it.

I sprinkled a little bit of my healthy fairy dust - I totally made that word up - and now more of my colleagues are consuming fruits and vegetables at work.

Yay me!

Except one. This woman - I will not say her name but she knows who she is - eats Del Taco every single day during her lunch break. She orders a taco and a quesadilla-with a Diet Coke-and refuses to eat anything that's remotely healthy.

And she's tiny! How is that possible?
Every time I offer her a piece of fruit or vegetable, she laughs at my face and says she wants nothing to do with my "rabbit food."

She then went as far as to print out a nutritional fact sheet from Del Taco and argued with me for a good 10 minutes saying that her food was totally healthy and that she's in perfect health.

I may be a little gullible - OK a lot gullible - but how can fast food be healthy and good for you?

Don't get me wrong, I love me a good In-N-Out cheeseburger - with animal fries and a shake - but to eat it every single day?

So my mission for the next couple of weeks is to get her to eat a carrot. I'll even go as far as to put some taco sauce in them in order to entice her.

Challenge accepted!

The fortune collector

Little Tokyo
April 15, 2014
There are still some things I haven’t gotten quite used to since I moved to Santa Clarita. The parking is still pretty much unbearable, but I will say that I parallel parked the other day all by myself without any assistance from neighbors and/or random people on the street. I’ve ...
