If your Dad buys this sales pitch, I'm sure he'd love to buy my old truck. Its a classic, 1992 Ford Ranger in PERFECT condition
(yeah .... r i g h t ;-)
Seriously, I think we all go through a bargaining
stage at some point or other, trying to convince
ourselves that our old favourite foods are somehow OK. Just last week, my wife said to me:
"You can eat blueberry pie right? Blueberries are full of antioxidants and are good for you right?"
SHE had a craving for blueberry pie and was trying to bargain with me. She, like quite a few people I have talked to, gets mad when I suggest eating better and exercising. I think its worth a little confrontation once in a while considering the end goal -- living longer and healthier.
Phish is right -- the pastry is the bad guy. A few slices of apple (or blueberries) won't hurt.
P.S. I have a Dad just like yours but his argument usually involves healthy waffles
