Fighting the fruit fight

I was grocery shopping a few days ago and overheard a girl telling what I assume must have been her mother that she hated vegetables. This is not anything out of the ordinary to hear in a grocery store, I'm sure, but what stuck out was that the girl was probably in her 20s and adamant about hating vegetables. I could hear it in her voice and she had a no-nonsense look on her face when she said it.

Just keep walking

Sylvia Plath said, in her autobiographical novel The Bell Jar, "There must be quite a few things a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them." While I do fully agree with the literary force of genius that is Plath, if that had been my statement, I would have written it: "There must be quite a few things a hot bath or a long walk won't cure, but I don't know many of them."
