As you read this I should hopefully be in Houston, Texas. I drove. It's not that that I have a fear of flying or anything like that. I just don't like to fly with air transportation being like it is now. And driving the open road is something I enjoy doing. Sure, it takes longer, but I don't mind. Road trips are fun.
If you're thinking my blog post title has a typo, it doesn't. This post is not really about flying, but it's about frying. No, I'm not turning Japanese--at least I don't really think so. It's summer and I'm concerned about frying in the heat.
Of course in a humid place like Houston I might be experiencing simmering rather than frying, but I always have some expectations of hot weather in the summer. I'm not a big fan of hot weather which is one advantage to living in Los Angeles. Oh, we do get some hot weather, but it's not often miserably hot night and day like it can get in the southeast United States.
Since I'm composing this post a couple weeks in advance I don't really know what the exact weather will be like, but usually it does get warm. I haven't heard about any cold wave coming to us this summer and besides since we're in the midst of global warming I guess hot weather is in the forecast.
Frying fears not only apply to the weather but to our food as well. I love fried foods of all kinds. I often regret that fried seafood platter or fried whatever after I eaten it, but it's so good while I'm eating it. Maybe we won't have to worry about eating fried food eventually since the government will probably ban it along with anything else they might think is bad for us. Pretty soon we won't get to eat anything with salt or sugar added or anything fried. No french fries, chips, sodas, alcoholic beverages, meat, or anything Big Brother (or Sister) thinks is bad for our health.
Horror of horrors! We may soon be only allowed to eat fruits, vegetables, nuts, and grains. Nothing processed, everything fresh. Good-bye McDonald's and Taco Bell. Hello Farmer's Market. I wonder if the Farmers' Markets will start having drive throughs.
Do you try to avoid flying? Do you like fried foods? Do you think the government should tell us what we can or cannot eat?
