At my book club (my other book club) last weekend, after we had lunch, my friend Rita brought out some fabulous-looking brownies. As if that weren’t enough, she then brought out vanilla ice cream. As she scooped the ice cream onto the plates with the brownies, she said “the ice cream helps cut the sweetness.” We all laughed and then someone commented that if we had Diet Coke, it would counteract the calories as well. And we laughed some more.
What “story” do you tell yourself?
