After my husband asked me to help him shed some unwanted pounds, I stopped serving fattening TV snacks and substituted crisp celery. Much better to eat healthy than to spend time looking for diet pills that actually work.
While he was unenthusiastically munching on a stalk one night, a commercial caught his attention. As he watched longingly, a woman spread gooey chocolate frosting over a freshly baked cake.
When it was over, my husband turned to me. “Did you ever notice,” he asked, “that they never advertise celery on TV?”
