Yes, I’m still watching the carbs, and while it’s true that one does not get hungry on this diet, by the dinner hour, it’s time to focus on the main meal of the day. Especially when one has forgotten to eat a snack, and has a forkful of avocado and orange sections on the way to its destination. It is not a good time to hear from a telemarketer.
But this was someone representing Apple, wanting me to pay attention to their protection plan. I have every intention of getting this plan, but was not willing to put the fork down and dig out my credit card just then. I treated the caller to a detailed account of my computer problems, to which, of course, he had no decent response.
Last night, as I was soaping a pot in order to cook another much-anticipated supper, the phone rang. It sounded very much like the same caller. Checking to see if I was ready to buy. Did he catch me at a bad time? Was I going to rinse off my hands and go get my credit card? Did I give him a piece of my mind?
Does this diet make me grumpy? Nah.
I know these people have to make a living. I also know where I can get the plan for a lot less.
