Overheard at Target, a (not-of-healthy-weight) mother talking to her (not-of-healthy-weight) daughter:
“So, we ate at Burger King last night for dinner. Where do you want to eat tonight? McDonald’s or Wendy’s?”
I don’t know what to say. Not that there isn’t anything to say about that, because there are volumes. There’s just so much wrong with it that I wouldn’t know where to start. I suppose I don’t really need to go off at all — eloquent arguments abound out there against that kind of eating, against those kinds of eating establishments.
Why, then, do people — mothers, of all people! — remain unconvinced?
