2 Things Challenge for 2008-01-06, Health

Healthy Photographer Food
Stars Drive Inn
West Odessa, Texas

This is my tongue-in-cheek entry for this week's 2 Thing Challenge. I took this quick shot for the "Health" entry after spending several hours this evening taking pictures for the other half of the challenge, "Home."

Yes, that is a large (they call it "regular") sized ice cream, an "Avalanche." It's loaded with chunks of Butterfinger candy bar in it. What's your point?

This waitress was very sweet and looked like the picture of health to me. She told me she hoped I'd "win" the challenge. ;)

Wal, at least SHE looks healthy :) I love this photo because you overcame your fear and asked her if you could take her picture!

p.s. You should receive a FedX package tomorrow...

The Avalanche is sort of like Dairy Queen's Blizzard, huh? Those are great, maybe not the healthiest thing, but oh so good!

This reminds me of the documentary which I have seen called 'Supersize Me' by Morgan Spurlock about the huge portions in McDonalds. Since then, and all the bad publicity, they have made the portions smaller, and round here McDonalds also do fruit portions and salads, but I notice they are rarely eaten, and everyone still goes for the Big Mac! All right in moderation, I suppose, and there is a saying a little bit of what you fancy does you good! Great that you are taking pictures of people that you see.

Perfect! Nothing better than a burger, fries, and a shake to make one feel... Well, let's just leave it at feel, shall we?

Don't know why, but for some reason this photo reminded me of those news stories you read every once in a while about some centurion who's asked how they lived to be 100+. With rare exception, they claim that a cigarette a day and a glass of wine or bourbon is the secret to their longevity. I wonder if one day we'll read articles where centurions says their secret to long life one a Big Mac a day?!
