Two things I want to share today. Firstly, I have been thinking a lot about food lately. My wife started a diet campaign recently and I happily (is kicking and screaming happy?) joined in the process. Now, going to, from, or around the office is quite… distracting. You see, and smell, all kinds of interesting and saliva inducing smells when you are dieting. I frequently find myself stopping in the parking lot next to McJonald’s and watching the jolly, plump and ridiculously happy people leaving the establishment. During these moments of… distraction, I can’t help but think that I am quite willfully breaking God’s tenth commandment. Yes, it brings a smile (albeit brief) to my face to smell the old familiar friend of grease, fillers and MSG wafting through the air. However, with great willpower I have been able to refrain from indulging in these… distractions (note that “refrain” in this context includes any moments of blacking out, time loss and reawakening with special sauce on my lips, all explainable by… distractions).
This then brings me to the second thing I wanted to share. All this hullabaloo about food has gotten me to thinking about those who have no choice but to “diet” because of whatever worldly situation the economy, family or God has put before them. This time has helped me to reflect about this and make the decision to do what little I can for those in need. So, I decided to do a Food Drive for the Placer Food Bank. It runs from March 18-28th. Any new patient who brings in a non-perishable food item will receive in return a Free Exam, Free X-rays (if necessary), Free Report of Findings and a Free First Adjustment!
Also, on March 23rd (Saturday) we have our patient appreciation day. From 10 am to 2 pm we will be adjusting, massaging, eating and partying, and everything will be FREE. Don’t miss it!
I choose to be hungry. There are many who cannot make that choice. Step-up and give a little of yourself to help those who are less fortunate. I am, will you?
