happy convenience store day (7/11)
I was finishing off a big bag of Cheetos, crunchy, naturally baked, cheese flavored snacks, when I noticed the cheetah mascot dude on the bag (I’m assuming it’s a cheetah, ‘cause it rhymes with Cheetos – well, it doesn’t really rhyme, it alliterates – can you say that?) Anyway, the cheetah mascot dude is a cyclist! He’s got a yellow helmet on and everything. He’s even got disk brakes and quick release hubs on his yellow mountain bike. So, if I want to ride better, I guess I should be eating this crunchy crap all the time. It does say right on the front of the bag with a nice green stamp of approval from PepsiCo that it’s a “Smart Choice Made Easy.” And, the supplement on the back of the bag quotes Dr. Kenneth Cooper, a “Fitness and Wellness Expert,” as saying “fitness is a journey, not a destination. It must be continued for the rest of your life.” Well, that sounds pretty smart. Maybe these cheese flavored snacks are just the ticket. And they’re light and cheap and easy to find at your friendly neighborhood convenience store.
