Serendipitous Righteousness

Beatrice was away for a girls’ weekend. In itself, rather hubristic, but I can man up for it and house sit the doggies. The new Fitbit made them happy and they got more walks than average. …That Bea did a girls’ weekend just two weeks ago with a different set of girls is no matter at all; says nothing about me.

What’s important is the leftovers she brought back, including this.

I think it’s called a flatbread. Could be called soda crackers with stuff on it to make soda crackers a bit chewy; but I agree, flatbread sounds way more chic.

I was going to toss it, but then realized: THERE’S CHEESE ON IT! One doesn’t toss cheese, even when moldy. Plus, some cheeses are known for their mold. I don’t discriminate when it comes to mold on cheese. Can you see it? Those white blobs. I do believe that’s cheese. Don’t even get me started on the carelessly splotched pesto, the willy-nilly sprinkling of added pine nuts, or three (count ’em) colors of tomatoes.

So, I cut a square (I have a custom in Fitbit called “calories” and the square gets a 100 kcal estimate).

Anyway, glad I didn’t toss it as some pathetic excuse for a real pizza, as I immediately felt fucking righteous hubris well up in me, with every bite.

    Not sure if I could stomach moldy cheese.

    Giving the gut bugs a workout, huh? Some (bugs) went on the attack, while others shook their tiny microbial heads in disbelief.

    Old man in Mexico eats leftover flat bread. Ok. I give up. FFS, what’s the SOE strategy with this post?

      I long for the days when you used to whore yourself with click bait. Now you just write about shit that is all a bit too real.

      Why it was in the post title. Righteousness. So, Holy communion, obviously. I do believe it’s unleavened.

    try not ejaculating for at least a month. Still have sex of course, just don’t ejaculate. It does wonders for your brain chemistry and Mrs Nikoley will enjoy your new found “motivation” too I think.

      I seriously adore comments where you can’t be absolutely sure whether it’s a troll or not. 🙂
