Can’t Avoid The Carbs When Flying The Friendly Skies

Filed under: Health — @ March 14, 2007

I took a flight to Reno, Nevada today and couldn’t help but notice some rather disturbing issues to this active low-carber.

Our plane took off around 6:30am from my hometown of Spartanburg, South Carolina to Houston, Texas so the flight attendant went around shortly after departure asking the passengers if they wanted an apple spice muffin. “Do you want a muffin, do you want a muffin?” she said to everyone as she pranced down the aisle with these high-carb morsels of pure unadulterated RAT POISON!

So she gets to us and asks her now infamous question, “Do you want a muffin?” Already knowing what my answer would be, I assumed my wife would tell the lady she’d like one but her husband will pass. But that’s not what happened. Do you know what Mrs. Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb did instead? She leaned over and asked me with a straight face, “Do you want a muffin?”

If you could have seen the look I gave her when she asked that ridiculous question, I’m sure you would have laughed your head off! LOL! I responded, “Say what?! You’re joking, right? You know I can’t have a muffin.” Christine said she got nervous and just forgot I was livin’ la vida low-carb. Forgot? Oh my, how in the world did that happen? :-~

With that answer the stewardess moved on to the next victim…er, I mean, passenger to offer them one of these carb-y breakfast items to begin their sugar-loading for the day. ARGH!

When they came back around a few minutes later offering drink service, she asked what we would like to drink and I responded that I would like a Diet Coke. But when she went to pour my drink she picked up a regular Coke instead.
