*The following script, is in connection to a series of conversations entitled ‘Riddle Me That…” which is due for release at the beginning of 2019.
Palmar: Hey, have you tried the new app Fructose that allows you to explore the depths of glucose?
Allegra: Ah! Yes! It’s so good. Every time I think I should put it down – it proves me to be a liar because I can’t let it go. It’s like that chip you keep coming back too and the lemonade your grandmother makes! It’s just addictive like crack, honestly! lol!
Palmar: That’s what I heard and probably precisely why I ain’t trying to give it a go. I don’t want to do anything that makes me a slave to it.
Allegra: Who claimed you’d be a slave to it?
Palmar: Well, you mentioned crack and grandma’s lemonade…I’d say it’s quite powerful. Powerful enough to be the master of your senses. If it makes you a liar that means you can’t contest it.
Allegra: I never tried to contest it because I enjoy indulging it so much.
Palmar: Have you tried to abstain from it to see how your body would react to it?
Allegra: I ain’t trying to break away from it because I worry I might be dependent on it and you know the body develops dependence to some substances. If an alcoholic goes cold turkey it could literally kill them because they abused it for so long.
Palmar: So, would you say you abuse fructose?
Allegra: I suppose, I do. But we all abuse various things in life – I don’t think it’s a big deal.
Palmar: If you don’t want to live long and develop various diseases – you do have a point.
Allegra: Yeah but I don’t see why you are making it seem as if pursuing pleasure is a bad thing, we all have our various vices.
Palmar: You know what they say: Everything in moderation. If you feel you can’t resist fructose you might to want to start cutting it out one day at a time. Cold turkey might not be the best alternative but slowly breaking away from your addiction secures a better future for your mental and physical health.
Allegra: But I like fructose, why break away from what I like?
Palmar: Not all vices are remedies to the consequences that come from them.
Allegra: Ok. Well, I’m going to do me, and you can do you.
Palmar: So, are you saying you rather continue to head down a cycle of abuse because this is YOU right now?
Allegra: All I said is I’ll do me, and you will do you. I never asked you to lecture me about the dangers of fructose. I am aware of how bad it could be. However, as with anything they’re loopholes.
Palmar: I reckon those loopholes are very few.
Allegra: So, are you going to interrogate me about this from this day forth? Are you going to continually remind me how I’m killing myself and recommend me articles and links to help me get better or what? Do you think most obese and overweight people know they are or should they be constantly reminded of this fact?
Palmar: Healthy reminders shouldn’t be triggers.
Allegra: But they shouldn’t reinforce a sense of evangelism either. You can say what you need without judging me for it or educating me on something that I already know about. Some of us are on our way dying and can’t be convinced to change their habits. (Maybe they want to die or don’t care much for changing) No need to put me through an intervention. If I was on my death bed and I wanted to try LSD would you refuse me of that? Would you tell someone who is already dying that they should take proper steps to ensure they live longer? For what purpose? I don’t have children or a partner depending on my life.
Palmar: So, if you had children or a partner – that wouldn’t compel you to live longer?
Allegra: I’m not totally sure. That’s not why I do what I do. I have plenty of friends including yourself that may want the best for me. I just want you to know I understand the risks and if experience leads me to make a remarkable change then I’ll oblige but for now, I’ll enjoy my fructose but take more consideration to moderation.
Palmar: That’s good, I’m happy to hear that.
Allegra: I hope you live long and stay clear from the range of accidents! You know you never know when they may happen. *chuckles*
BACK TO YELLOW!
I’ve remastered various videos and will have them re-released this month. The funny thing about this is that most people haven’t even seen these videos so they are basically new videos that have never seen the light of day. When I look back at the numbers of my content, I’m underwhelmed about how many people never ever watched them. 😀 That’s OK though, the internet always provides a room for you. Even if discovered years later! 😀
I asked my friend Unicole to write down her thoughts on Gifs and Stats and she did an incredible job conveying this message. Check out her message here!
Lemme show you what I learned. Hold up! See! Now according to this study – you can actually be wrong and right at different times.
Ain’t That Some Shit?!
When the unexpected becomes the reality beyond your ability to see it in the near distance. When it rains on your picnic! Ain’t That Some Shit?
The ones who were supposed loose, end up winning by a landslide! Ain’t That Some Shit?
The fitness trainer eating healthy decided to cut out meat and dairy but was still eating fatty snacks and sugary treats and end up having health problems because of it. Ain’t That Some Shit?
No matter how much you study and practice, if you don’t memorize the basics, you can still fail. Ain’t That Some Shit?
We live our life talking to one another unable to see ourselves, however, people can see us and what we look like. Ain’t That Some Shit?
By invalidating emotions but granting hardcore facts, we risk losing proper interpretations of both. Ain’t That Some Shit?
If you ever had to say “Ain’t That Some Shit” at any point, please share with me! 😀
This very series is symbolic – it’s not just about food. We often consume various things due to it simply being available to us. We weren’t always eating what we eat now but through habit and advertisement – sugars go through our brains which in return creates a reaction of dopamine. It’s a rush.
I’m eating better because I’m denying the invitation to eat more. (Portion Cutz)
This is the end of the series ‘A New Narrative of Consumption’. Sometimes you can eat too much but there comes a time you must consider what you are eating. Snacks ain’t bad and neither is food but sometimes you got to draw the line when you indulge at a very fast rate. The roar feeling inside our stomach – is demanding that you stop eating but it’s so good! But you got to tame the beast inside – &ENDOVERINDULGENCE
