86 The Food

No more jeers from my thankless audience of teenaged offspring: “I’m hungry!” “There’s never any food in the house.” “Why can’t we ever eat something normal.” “This is like fear factor!” 

How’s this for normal— half a glass of water and your sustenance pill. Enjoy. 

A pill that could replace all food. Think of the possibilities. No more grocery shopping, no more food prep, no slaving over a hot stove, no more dirty dishes or stinky trash. What would people do on dates if not eat? I don’t know… not eat? No more people eating their feelings and then taking up more than their share of space in public places. No more food! I admit to having some food issues, (See my post – “Why I Don’t Eat Meat” http://wp.me/p4qFBN-gv), but this could really be a great thing.

Let’s discuss what this would mean to all of Gods creatures. No more gavage—foie gras cruelty; free the ducks and geese! Set tortured cows pigs and chicken free to wander the vast prairies as they were intended. Beluga Sturgeon eggs would hatch instead of sold in tiny one ounce jars labeled caviar for $200. to be eaten on toast points by people with too much disposable income. Remove the human from the food chain. Live and let live, as it should be. 

Taking food out of the economy would have a detrimental effect, but hey, that’s not my problem. When did the economy ever consider my needs? Restaurants would go out of business, as would their supply companies, cooks, waitstaff, dishwashers, bus-boys all out of work. Farmers, dietitians and nutritionists jobs would all become obsolete.

Taking groceries off my shopping list would free up a good percentage of my income, leaving me with more money to throw away on other superfluous desires, like shelter. 

Pharmaceutical companies would rake in the profits—pardon my mistake, nothing would change on that front. 
No more thick fog of grease hanging in the air at the carnival over the fried snickers bars stand. 

No more food born illness on cruise ships. Other cruise ship viruses such as the Norovirus would not be effected. 
No more spinach recalls.

No more embarrassing spinach in teeth for that matter.

No more watching a beard full of crumbs dance precariously on the chin of a hairy beast who speaks sports. 

No more pressure to eat something you can’t stomach out of politeness. 
No more food allergies or intolerance… 

Oh… are these pills gluten free?
