Okay! It is a very nice day. The temperature rocketed right up to 44 this afternoon. Now a normal high for this area would be over 50, but after the temperatures we have been having for quite some time, 44 sounds absolutely tropical. I went for an outdoor walk which makes me happy. Everything is copacetic, or so it would seem.
It lasted until I had to get my daily Trivia fix. The game got me again today. It took 5 questions to get 3 correct responses. Now when you are trying to improve a falling average, 3 out of 5 simply won't do! My main complaint is one of the questions where I really felt that the answer was unfair, unfair, unfair. It had to do with eating immediately before retiring. For those of you who may get this in a personal attempt at perfection, the answer is that that food is metabolized exactly like something you might have eaten earlier. I didn't answer that because they put this very tricky little response that said part of the intake would turn to fat. Now, really, doesn't part of everything you eat turn to fat unless you have a caloric deficit for that day? And, how would you determine the metabolism rate? You doctors and nurses need to weigh in on this question.
The other missed question didn't bother me in the least because I knew I was just taking a shot in the dark. It was one of those hated multiple choice answers. In refined flour 17 of the nutrients are lost. I don't know anyone who would answer that with any certainty of having a correct answer. I mean my smartest and biggest know-it-all friend wouldn't know that one.
