(singing totally off-key) Sugar, ah honey, honey, you are my candy, girl and you got me wanting you. (etc.)

1
OMG, please stop! Look, I’ll play the video, OK?

2
Well! Fine, just fine! I was just thinking about white sugar and white flour, the ‘evil white twins of death’!

Oh, by the way, you did not make obvious that in galvanic corrosion (#30) that electrical current is needed for the corrosion to happen quickly, that power has to be on in the boat or light fixture, otherwise corrosion is way, way slower.

1
Right, I stated that wiring ran through it but never stated that the current from turning the light on or using power in the boat accelerated the process, sort of like gold- plating jewelry or some such.

Now about this ‘evil white twins of death’ thing you mentioned.

2
Yessir, I am going to adapt and adopt based upon exhaustive research. I have been convinced that cholesterol in and of itself is not a problem, but only when there is arterial damage caused by the ‘evil twins’. It has been demonstrated that is where clots happen, blockages happen. So we are treating the secondary agent and not addressing the primary concern, the white stuff.  And the food industry would have served us better by leaving some fat in and sugar out, I think.

1
So you think we can get away from white flour and white sugar? They are everywhere! Especially sugar.

2
Well, those sugar-related fainty-crashes we are susceptible to are no fun. But as for a diet? Remember we talked to that guy a few weeks ago that tried raw vegan and he had to back off because he was ‘high’ all the time, from the foods? Extremism is out, which it always should be, life, food, politics, whatever. Extremism bad, moderation good!

(I could go off on a tangent about moderation, centering, the middle path, non-doing, yada yada, but I won’t. Nope.)

1
Yes, so weird. And a certain unnamed person (Hedy) first mentioned ‘flexitarian’ to us, hahahahahahaha. I love that but hadn’t seen it before.

2
Yeah, that is pretty good and fits us. I think I’ll write a self-help book titled ‘The Flexitarian Dilemma And What To Do When Out And About’ and make some serious cash. I mean, I can print up some fake diplomas online and stuff, become an degree-rich expert and not quite plagiarize various other authors. Make some serious cash!

*******Break For Coffee, NO added sugar (after which 1 and 2 have switched roles for some reason)********

So, you added no sugar, have you done the dishes? swept the living room, mopped? Recorded your walking mileage for the month to date? Balanced your pathetic accounts?

1
Check, check, check and check (thinking, why the third degree? Why now?) About this white sugar thing. Since we started recording when we buy a 4 lb. bag, right on our ‘impregnable sugar vault’, we have increased our ‘time for consumption’ to more than twice as long as the first bag. We are about 60% down in use and that will drop some more as we have started drinking our coffee like ‘real men’ do, black with no sugar.

2
Oh, really, is that how ‘real men’ drink their coffee? I thought it was some sort of organic, fair trade, non-dairy mocha or latte or such from a coffee-house with some sort of exotic sugar. And we don’t have an ‘impregnable sugar vault’, we use a repurposed soy-spread container and record the buy dates on the lid with a magic marker.

1
Picky, picky! Impregnable vault or plastic container, whatever. Well, if we actually go to a coffee-house we will treat ourselves to an exotic coffee-like drink if we want though we usually just get a dark or regular and maybe add sugar and a flavor, anyway. But at home, black with no sugar is the plan. Just like we used to (before Panama where the coffee shop had all these weird flavors but no regular coffee so one was forced to doctor it up and since we lived directly above it, it was too, too convenient and $1.75/bottomless cup so we didn’t go somewhere else for a cup (or 12) of Joe).

2
Right, we aren’t as concerned with added sugar (peanut butter) but with sugar we add. NOT YET!

And (at home) we’ll continue making oat flour from oatmeal with just enough white flour so we can handle it, shape it, like that, making milk from rice if needed (which actually isn’t half bad) and figure out what to do about bread which has both ‘evil white twins of death’ because our local food mart is no help with any of this.

1
So we are going to adapt and adopt and don’t know exactly where we will end up as far as labels go, but then a label is just a label and mostly, just a label.

2
Let’s post a video of the Archies singing Sugar, Sugar and continue to work our diet some more.

1
Right, let’s do.
