Books Make You Fat...




CNN recently posted an article on how Pizza Hut may be contributing (deviously) to obesity in children through their reading program called Book It! Kids get a free pan pizza every time they meet a reading goal. As a student, I remember this program. I got a holographic button with star stickers on it. Since I read non-stop, I got lots of pepperoni pizzas. I am secretly hoping this comes to a class-action lawsuit. I'm not asking for much, Book It! (just a personal trainer).

Hey! I remember that program, too! I was amazed they would give me my own personal pan pizza just for reading a few books. And the sticker...wow. Good times.

OK, so I guess I may have implied that I got a whole small pizza. That would make a person fat. No, you're right to point out that it was a personal sized pizza. But still!

I'm so excited to find your blog from FaceBook. I've been wanting to read things you write and finally I get a dose of your thoughts. This is great!
