Why Unicorns Shouldn't Drive

This is why I can't eat spicy stuff anymore: At about 4 this morning I awoke with chest pain. I still have it actually despite downing lots of Pepto. I think it's heartburn from eating some chips and salsa last night. At least I hope that's what it is. If I don't post anymore after this, I've died of a heart attack.

I heard this story on the news yesterday morning about a guy who was in a wreck and claimed that the wreck happened because a unicorn was driving his truck. Apparently, though, it's all a misinterpretation of a slang term used by attorneys (the "unicorn defense") and he actually claimed that some nonexistent person was driving his car. But I thought it inspired such a great post title that I'm going to keep it anyway! My favorite quote from the story was "Mr. Holliday has other serious problems, but this is not one of them."

I have been rocking the citrus lately in my attempt to eat more fruit. Last week I got some grapefruit because these babies were on sale 3 for a dollar. Anyway, inspired by Anna's food photos, I decided to take a couple of shots. This grapefruit was really good, even though I did experience the downside of eating grapefruit when at one point it squirted juice right in my eye as I plunged the serrated spoon into its juicy pink flesh.

If you see any of these people wish them a happy birthday:

I would love to see what Mr. Holliday's other serious problems amount to!

Love the unicorn story. What are his other serious problems?
It's really good you're eating grapefruit. It's a great cleanser.
Oh Poncho what happened.
And Lauren's my girl. Go 40!
And Isabelle. She has a great name. If I ever had a daughter I wanted to name her Isabelle.

Thanks for the shout out! I feel all influential. I love the color in the grapefruit pictures. Sorry the grapefruit hurt you. I hope your future citrus plunderings are less painful, serrated plungings and all.
