Slice of Lime-Slice of Pizza

Perhaps you recall this series of especially flattering shots from February when I went through a 10 day nutritional detox.  If you don't, heck, even if you do, take a second to remind yourself of what I look like when forcing a powdered sewage shake down my own gullet.  It's a great look.  I'm sure all the supermodels will soon be working this look.

Believe it or not I subjected myself to this process and all the attendant liquid horror again.  Voluntarily.  Yeah, some people are gluttons for punishment but if you didn't already figure that out about me then I guess I should thank you for holding onto delusions which paint me as being somehow sane.

Wednesday was the first day I could anything I wanted.  I made a beeline for this 12" onion and green pepper pizza.  It was done to perfection.  It made me very happy.




So very happy.  (I'm easy that way.  Especially after gagging down the swill shakes. Honestly, the only way I could do it was to mix the swill and chug the whole thing in one long continuous gulp.  It was determined by observers that I had missed my calling as a competitive beer chugger. They found it vastly entertaining to watch me slug a pint of this crap back as quickly as I did and then chase it with a pint of water after it, all in under 10 seconds.  They're easy that way.  But I digress...)

I did not share my pizza.  It was my reward.  I took my time and savored every last bite of it.

I dunno. . . it just seems sorta, um, ironic to come of a 'nutritional detox' with a pizza. . .

But hey, glad you enjoyed it. . .

;)

WordVer = 'dowerot'

which just seems like it fits here, somehow. . .

Yeah, some people are gluttons for punishment...

Well, the stuff, mistakenly called food, the hospital I work at serves is just cruel and unusual.

Not enough sauce or cheese on that!

haphazardlife said...

Yeah but...

Aren't you just "toxing" yourself again by eating pizza?

Suldog said...

That's a pretty good-looking pizza, almost resembles that served at The Pleasant. Yum!

Of course, watching you eat it is a sensual treat in and of itself.

Oh yuck! I had to do something like that when they decided to drive a submarine up my plumbing. Horrific experience... the drink, the sub part was much less traumatic. Of course that could have been due to the drugs. =;}
Glad you had that pizza waiting for you. Well earned!

How does your body react to have such YUM put in it after so many days of such YUCK?

Also, what's the purpose of the detox, exactly? I mean, I get the word "detox," but what do you find it does for you? Are you on all liquids for those 10 days?

But why are you doing this to yourself?
