Bagel Run


I’ve been meaning to replenish our bagel supply for the past few weeks. Last weekend, I realized I could do an online order and pick it up. This appealed to me because they might be out of the flavors we like if I just went there. I finally did an online order for pickup today. We needed to get prescriptions anyway, so it was a nice outing. Now we have bagels and a loaf of challah bread to make french toast. Yum.

Lion says we haven’t been eating as well as we should. He’s craving fresh vegetables. I say he’s in the wrong season. Thankfully, grocery stores can get fresh veggies year-round. I know we’ve been eating a lot of pasta, but we’ve had salads, and we just ate beef stew with carrots and celery. I think the problem is that he doesn’t cook much anymore, and I run out of patience when it comes to cooking. It was easier when we did the meal plans. I still hated cooking them, but at least it was all laid out for me. I guess the real problem is meal planning. In short, we don’t.

I’m wondering if the lack of fresh vegetables and eating well is the thing that’s affecting Lion’s semen production. Is that possible? I think it’s possible, but is it probable? I’ll gladly cook (and eat –yuck) fresh veggies if it will restore his cream filling. Regardless, I’m sure it will make us feel better even if I don’t like eating my veggies. Ironically, as a kid, I loved spinach. Most kids don’t. However, I don’t like fresh spinach. The only vegetables I had problems with were brussels sprouts and lima beans. Guess what Lion loves. Yup. Brussels sprouts. Of course, they taste a lot better when someone other than my mother cooks them. I don’t know what she did, but they were bitter little fart balls.

For the sake of Lion feeling better, I am willing to set aside my aversion to fresh veggies. I’m hoping for increased semen production, but even if that doesn’t work, at least Lion will feel better, and he’ll be happier.
