vegetables and surgical procedures don't mix

i don't like to eat lunch
the meal annoys me
i wish i could just take a pill - like in willy wonka or star trek - and just be done w/it.
i DO enjoying going out to lunch, where i am served something that i am way too lazy to make
so some days it gets pretty late by the time i figure out the lunch thing

last week i ate lunch at 4 at Poochie's - such an unfortunate name (but perfect for someone with a stomach like mine) for the health food joint that's been there forever on 6th betwn 14 and 15. i was reading a book by a boston BC survivor/doctor...Living through BC.
previous to my hiatus in LA, i'd had a stomach of steel when it came to reading about the details of reconstruction surgery. i had to close the book though just to get down my steamed cabbage, broccoli and carrots.

similarly, i just googled "pedicle tram problems" and read some horror stories about this operation going awry. no matter how saggy my gut is, i don't think this is the way to go.
ok, at least i crossed that one off the list.
maybe if i gain weight some day i'll do it.
or if i have an extra $4500 (and change my thinking about "vanity surgery") i'll get a tummy tuck.

[and, yes, i know that all surgery has its complications and that i will find some tortured soul blogging about the agony of a split end if i look hard enough]
