"BLUE RIDGE, Ga., Dec. 22, 1985 (UPI)-— A 175-pound black bear apparently died of an overdose of cocaine after discovering a batch of the drug, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said today. The cocaine was apparently dropped from a plane piloted by Andrew Thornton, a convicted drug smuggler who died Sept. 11 in Knoxville, Tenn., because he was carrying too heavy a load while parachuting. The bureau said the bear was found Friday in northern Georgia among 40 opened plastic containers with traces of cocaine."
First, let me say that I have an image of Yogi running around the woods all hyped up saying "Hey Booboo! You gotta try some of this!"
There is also the story about the goats who wear their teeth to the gums trying to eat hallucinogenic lichen from rocks.
Like the bear and cocaine, I cannot control myself around crap food (especially cookies). There is crap food everywhere. At work, people have crap at their desks, we are having potluck after potluck and there is often leftover pizza from somebody's lunch meeting. not to mention the bagels, donuts, muffins and such that constantly are provided to our group. At least I haven't stooped to eating donuts. Home isn't any better - everyone eats the SAD. At least twice a week someone is making cupcakes, brownies, cookies or pie. Then every "special" occaison we have ice cream cake. And then there's the holidays.
Plus, we seem to constantly going to one event after another - school, church, team sport activities - again lots of crap!
I just don't seem to be able to keep it under control. And as a diabetic, this is not a minor issue. I'm good for 3-5 days and then wham! Out of control for a day or two. I usually try to hide when I'm eating badly, since everyone knows I shouldn't be eating crap.
What's a bear to do?
