Oh no, I've become one of those people.
Here's a conversation I had with a colleague (and my thoughts as we had it).
Colleague: I've signed up to Slimming World.
Me: Oh yeah? (Bit expensive if you ask me)
C: I haven't told anybody else yet.
Me: Mm (well that won't help)
C: I tried one of their recipes for tomato soup today, it's really good. It's just a tin of carrots (salt), a carton of pasata (salt), and one of those pickled onions you get from the chip shop (Salt!).
Me: Sounds easy. (Sounds processed)
C: You should try it!
Me: Mm (No thanks).
Then there's my chronic-dieter friend. If a weird, faddy diet exists she will have tried it. A few weeks ago she made us this amazing dessert; all it contains is cottage cheese, jelly powder and chopped fruit. Nothing wrong with that! When I invited her over for dinner I asked if she could eat that dessert on her latest diet and her answer, word for word, was:
"No I can't. I can't really eat anything."
Off went that voice again. Oh yeah sounds very healthy AND sustainable, not to mention absolute fun. I wonder why we don't all follow that diet! *mental roll of eyes*.
What?? When did that happen? When I did I become so snarky and superior? As if I've got everything perfectly figured out and don't scoff the whole bag of marshmallows any time one is opened within 10 metres of me. It's like the voice in my head got tired of being silenced, but I won't let it go for me so it's turning on everyone else.
It's got to stop! I need positivity in my life, not snark!
Well maybe a little snark...but just the funny kind.
