ChocolateBet: October 20, 2006
I'm in the airport, heading toward my assigned gate, waiting to fly home from a business trip. I decide I have just enough time to get some ice cream at an airport concession/food stand. I order a cup, a single scoop size, of Bud's Mint Chip ice cream, and am handed an enormous, heaping scoop in a white styrofoam cup. It threatens to melt and overflow, even before I find a place to sit down with my suitcase. I can't help but think to myself, "No wonder Americans are so overweight." I can only eat about half of this, although it's OK, before dumping it in the trash. Maybe it's also because it's warm outside and also because I've been eating road food for the past few days, and am just over-stuffed.
