Nourish This!

I didn’t have my camera with me today but…

While driving home from work I spied a pickup truck with an advertisement on the rear window of its cab. I remember but one phrase:

“NOURISHING THE BODY WITH NUTRITION”

As if one can nourish the body with electricity, pencils, salamanders, boric acid or asphalt…

Does diet Mountain Dew count as "nutrition"? If so, then I suppose I've been nourishing myself all day and night...

(Hey, it's better than salamanders...although it might be as corrosive as acid...)

I used to have the ice cold diet coke and reese's peanut butter cup breakfast of champions at work...

It nourished my sugar addiction :)

Grammarphile: LOL. It might if caffeine is on the food pyramid! I used to nourish myself on Welch's grape soda in NJ. God I loved that shit!

Loving Annie: Back in 1984 or so I used to feed hangovers in the morning with a banana, a slice of toast with peanut butter, and a glass of ice cold milk. I'd follow that yummy breakfast with a Baby Ruth (aka Breakfast Log) and a Sunkist orange soda about an hour later. Worked like a champ :-)
